Meet The Trustees


Fola Yahaya

I’m the Founder of Strategic Agenda, a communications consultancy that helps clients communicate with impact to a global audience.

After a stint at the UN, I completed a PhD at the LSE and then worked for Morgan Stanley, the UK home office, BP and the Government of Qatar, before founding Strategic Agenda.

Having attended various boarding and public schools I wanted something different for my children. Namely, that they should be cared for, and educated by, people who actually like children and that they should leave school bolstered by an academic and social confidence that empowers them to do anything and be nice to boot.

I have worked in advertising for 20+ years in New York, Paris and London. My husband is an architect.  Through our careers we have both seen the impact of technology and automation. 


One of the reasons we chose LWS is because while tech and automation will play a significant role in our children's lives, thinking differently, being analytical, writing eloquently and effectively and speaking with confidence and even flair will be even more important.  LWS is the type of school that fosters this approach to learning and to life.

With over twenty-five years of experience in project logistics within the oil and gas industry, coupled with my multicultural background, diversity, and inclusivity, I believe that I can bring a unique perspective to LWSF. Originally from Azerbaijan and now residing in the UK for over two decades, I have immersed myself in various cultures and languages, enriching my understanding of global dynamics.

Throughout my career, I've navigated through diverse roles, from global Project Management to CEO positions,. My commitment to fostering diversity and inclusivity aligns seamlessly with LWSF's ethos, which places children at the forefront and emphasises a love for learning and holistic development. I hope to use my skills to support LWSF in its endeavour to educate and give children and young people the best start in life.

Together, let's champion education and empower the next generation to become well-rounded, happy individuals.
