Innovative and limitless!

Lindsey brings a warm and personal experience to every child whiles never compromising on academic expectations. Underpinning these creative lessons such as her fruit autopsy lesson, Lindsey includes a wealth of art history and draws on a wide range of cultural and artistic influences. We adapted her fruit autopsy lesson from an Art GCSE lesson to our English as an Additional Language lesson for visiting Chinese students who loved learning food vocabulary in such a fun way.

As a colleague and collaborator you will not find a better professional on your team!

Dr Lindsey Bennett is an inspirational researcher, art practitioner, author and teacher.  In all aspects of her work, her approach to educational practice is always student-centric and this is just as abundantly clear through her academic works and publications as it is in her classroom pedagogy. Lindsey’s mentorship and guidance is valued beyond measure and she elicits the very best out of colleagues and students alike. Her distinguished career within the education sector affords her an extensive understanding of the issues and challenges facing educators, whilst her creativity, compassion and dynamism facilitates insights and solutions. Dr Bennett achieves what is often lacking in academic research; a perfect balance of theoretical and conceptual knowledge with practical, hands-on experience. She is a tour de force.

Working with Lindsey is both inspirational and energising. Having worked on multiple projects, I’ve always come away feeling like I’ve learnt and grown as an individual. Her ability to hold in balance the small details and big picture enables new thinking to take place and enhanced understanding.
