Like a stick of rock, the word ‘education’ runs through Estelle Morris. After 18 years teaching at a comprehensive in Coventry, Estelle entered Parliament in 1992. She became the Secretary of State for Education and Skills in 2001, followed by two years as a Minister at the Department of Culture Media and Sport. A member of the House of Lords since 2005, she sits as Baroness Morris of Yardley. Goldsmiths is proud to have had Estelle as its Chair of Council, providing leadership and inspiration to the College, for six years.
