Meet the Team

David Morgan

Founder, CEO

I have a BSc in Mechanical Engineering and a Masters in Education. Before becoming a literacy specialist, I worked as a business manager and before that a cavalry officer in the British Army. They say variety is the spice of life! My favorite things are all forms of music, skiing, anything that floats on water and times with my family, preferably somewhere warm.

Sarah Forrest

Projects Manager, Program Advisor

I help oversee our children’s literacy programs and also dabble in copywriting, marketing, training, and content creation at David Morgan Education. I live with my family in Alabama, where I love to eat chocolate chips, sit in the sunshine and sing opera. Not (usually) all at once.

Lydia Cockburn

Program Manager, Social Media Manager

I studied French and Linguistics here in Oxford and now support the children and parents using the Easyread system to make sure they reach their goals! Outside office hours I can be found tooting on a trombone or frolicking on football fields (sometimes with Matt!)

Laura Gordon

Graphic Designer

I’ve spent most of my working life as a college lecturer and academic adviser, but my professional adventures have included photography, professional writing, and television. Most of all, I love reading and teaching – and my two children are my very favorite (and most challenging) students.

Eleanor Broome

Program Advisor, Prizemaster

I grew up in New Zealand but now live in Oxford where I did my degree in French literature. When I am not chatting with Easyread parents or packaging up prizes, I like to go on dog walks, find good climbing trees, get food with friends and become tangled in wool as I attempt to crochet.

Matt Bradshaw, DM Ed Developer

Matt Bradshaw

Lead Developer

I create games and activities for David Morgan Education courses, as well as maintaining the behind-the-scenes code. I live in Oxford and spend my spare time inventing electronic musical instruments.


Laser Focus

We will not rest until every child has access to Trainertext visual phonics. We are single-minded in our aim to eradicate childhood illiteracy.


We do not tread well-worn paths. We push the boundaries to find success for every child, using adaptive technology and tailored personal support.

It's Personal

Our purpose is our passion. We care deeply about the families we work with, and their children’s educational outcomes. A lot is at stake.


Everything we do is for children’s learning and enjoyment. Kids like to play to learn (us too)! Nothing boring leaves our design studio.
