Allan Brame was born in Birkenhead and educated at Bidston Avenue then Birkenhead School, before studying at Selwyn College Cambridge. After completing his PGCE at Goldsmiths College, London, Allan taught English in Birkenhead and Liverpool, retiring as Head of English in 2013.
Naturally Allan is passionate about education, currently serving as a governor at Ridgeway High School. He opposes the Conservatives’ obsession with free schools, particularly at a time when the budgets of mainstream schools are under severe pressure.
Allan believes that the impact of a Conservative hard Brexit will have a devastating impact on Birkenhead, threatening jobs and the living standards of ordinary families. The complex process of leaving the EU will divert scarce resources that could be far better used in the NHS and local schools. He is campaigning for the people to be given a referendum once the details of any deal to leave the EU have been agreed.
Allan served as the last councillor for Oxton on Merseyside County Council, where he was deputy leader of the Liberal group. Married, with a grown-up daughter, Allan is an elder at Trinity with Palm Grove Church , and chaired Oxton & Noctorum Churches Together for 12 years.
