Tony is an educational consultant and CEO of the charity ‘Generating Genius’, which helps young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to study Science and Technology at top Universities, including Exeter. He has been a member of the Youth Justice Board since 2015. Tony was born in London to Jamaican immigrants. He studied English at University of Essex and then went on to train as a teacher at Sussex University. He worked as a Secondary school teacher in some of London’s most challenging schools. During this period he worked on his PhD ‘Black masculinities and schooling’ which became an iconic work and led to several key publications. He helped with the transformation of education in Hackney as part of the team that set up the Learning Trust and the celebrated Mossbourne School, the flagship of the Academy movement. Tony then went on to set up the charity ‘Generating Genius’. He works in both the UK and the Caribbean and helped to set up the Science, Maths and Information Technology Centre in the department of education at Jamaica’s University of the West Indies. Recently he led the former Mayor of London, Boris Johnson’s Inquiry into London Education, which resulted in the London Schools Excellence Fund, a programme that helped London schools to achieve the top grades for their students. In January Tony was awarded a CBE for his work in education.

RT @michaelbrucePB Persuasive analysis from @laurendavidson in @Telegraph. Increasing evidence that Stamp Duty disproportionately hits older homeowners and, as I've said before, deters them from moving. Time to sort it out. Good to see @Policy_Exchange research cited too. telegraph.co.uk/tax/…
