Our People

Tom Ironmonger

Principal Lecturer
Deputy Head of the School of Business and Accounting
Foundation Year Course Leader


As an original member of Bloomsbury Institute’s Foundation Year team, it has been affirming to witness the progress that has been made over the past few years, and a point of pride to have played a part in helping to create a course which, I believe, offers a valuable and progressive introduction to the world of tertiary study.

In my new role, as Deputy Head of the School of Business and Accounting, and Foundation Year Course Leader, I am keen to nurture Bloomsbury Institute’s commitment to providing a supportive and welcoming environment for its students, whilst doing what I can to help invigorate and enhance pedagogy and practice.
