Dr Rachel Carr OBE


Dr Rachel Carr is the Chief Executive and co-founder of IntoUniversity. Previously, she was a university lecturer and Head of an English Department. Her idea for the IntoUniversity programme was backed by The Sutton Trust in 2002 and she spent four years on the ground creating and delivering the programme to children and young people in North Kensington.

In 2007 she became the CEO of the newly formed charity which was set up to scale the North Kensington project. Since then Rachel has led on the expansion of the charity from one IntoUniversity centre serving 850 students a year to its current 25 centres supporting over 30,000 students each year to reach their potential.

"I support the work of Royal SpringBoard as it provides pupils with the transformational experience of boarding school, hugely impacting on both their educational achievements and future successes."
