Our Team


Carolyn Maze

With an illustrious background in TV and digital and interactive media at a senior commercial level, including Sky and Associated Press, Carolyn founded the Maze Academy in 2019 after years of witnessing her son struggle to find a school that was the right fit for him. The intense pressure and resulting anxiety that he felt at the school he attended was taking a toll on his mental health and scholastic achievement, so she opted to develop a bespoke curriculum that incorporated a social, and emotional support program and chose homeschooling for a while. By removing the social anxieties that he had been experiencing and providing a progressive and flexible curriculum, he began to thrive.

Carolyn believes passionately that all children should have access to educational excellence and holistic support, regardless of their background and MazeOrg CIC is the non-profit arm through which she hopes to contribute to supporting those who could really benefit from this tailored approach to learning in the UK.
