He attended Eton and Clare College in Cambridge, as well as having previously worked as a journalist and author. 

Will’s principles align perfectly with the mission of Thomas’s. Their own parents, David and Joanna Thomas, responded to the rote-learning prevalent in 1970s junior education by developing an ethos which was centred on deep and sustained kindness, breadth of experience, and academic excellence.

The new co-educational secondary school is based in London for children aged 11 to 18 which will offer day, weekly and flexi-boarding places. Will’s involvement with its development begins this year ahead of the school opening in September 2025.
