About Francesca

Born in Italy, educated in Italy, France and the UK, mother of three children, Francesca is driven by the passion to make the world a more unified and happy place for everybody to live in and by the knowledge that, in order to achieve this, we need to start by educating our children better. After a career in marketing and event production, Francesca set up a bilingual primary school in London and joined the board of two other schools.

Francesca is happiest sitting in the sun with a good novel or speeding rather dangerously down a slope in fresh fluffy snow. Alternatively, she is quite happy in her kitchen baking cakes and chatting to her kids.

Francesca’s Role Model is her grandad who lost one eye when he was 17 but always saw people beyond their looks, never had a bad word to say about anyone and lived his life with a great sense of fun and wonder at its magic.
