Jessica Searle
student, Wimbledon High School; co-producer politics platform, Wimbledon BookFest

Jessica is a sixth former currently studying at Wimbledon High School for her A Levels, which she will be writing at the end of this year. She currently takes history, maths, English literature and French, and is hoping to study philosophy, politics, and economics at university.

This year, she is helping to produce the politics platform event run in conjunction with Wimbledon BookFest. The event aims to give young people a chance to ask questions to political influencers and promote youth interest in politics, something Jessica is a passionate advocate for.

When she’s not discussing politics, Jessica spends her time reading philosophical texts (Plato’s Republic is her current favourite) and keeping up to date with current affairs.
