Annaliese Briggs used to work on education reform and the curriculum for the Civitas think tank, and studied English at Queen Mary, University of London. She was controversially appointed as head of the central London school in March.
- It is believed that at the time she had no formal teaching qualifications, but spent time working in primary schools in Wandsworth

A headteacher appointed to run a free school despite having little experience or teaching qualifications has left the job just weeks after it opened. Annaliese Briggs is leaving "to pursue other opportunities within primary education", according to a notice to parents on Pimlico Primary's website.
