Research groups

Clare Stothart


Research Assistant


I am currently working within the TOPIC group on a BRC-funded project, to develop and maintain a large, national network of research-ready primary and secondary schools. The aim of the network is to facilitate mental health research with children and young people. 

I graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2006, with a BA (Hons) in English Literature. I went on to complete a PGCE in Secondary Education in 2007. Since then, I have worked in a range of school settings and taught a broad range of students, from reception up to sixth form. My most recent experience was with the Oxfordshire Hospital School, where I worked at the Highfield Adolescent Unit - a specialist inpatient service for young people aged 11 to 18 with acute mental health needs.

I am currently working towards completing an MSc Psychology Conversion course and am planning to focus my dissertation on how the impact of early childhood, medical intervention affects a young person's subsequent education and learning outcomes.
