What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.


29% of our founding cohort have at least one widening participation flag. For those who don’t work in admissions, this means that 29% of our students received free school meals (FSM), have spent time in care, or experienced another form of significant disadvantage.

Specifically, 18% of our students were eligible for FSM, compared to 12.5% of the population as a whole. Overall, only around 16% of FSM eligible pupils attend university, compared to more than 75% of those attending private school.[1]

We’re proud of our numbers. And this isn’t coincidence.

We got here because widening participation is central to our admissions process, where we look hard at every student’s background and schooling to make a fair but challenging offer. Back in 2020, this contextual approach to admissions was highlighted by the Office for Students in a report looking at best practice across higher education. In short, we take access seriously.

Enter our newest Board member, Sasha Morgan.

Sasha has been the Director of the UK’s Social Mobility Commission since 2019. The Social Mobility Commission is an advisory government body tasked with assessing and improving social mobility across the UK.

Prior to this position, Sasha held a number of roles in the cultural and political sectors, including an advisor to No. 10. She’s passionate about creative education, and oversees the education work of Bold Tendencies, an Arts Commissioning organisation based in Peckham.

“I’m so pleased to be able to join the Board of the London Interdisciplinary School. I love the way that the team relentlessly challenges itself to keep evolving this genuinely alternative higher education offer and deliver world class student learning, experience and outcomes.  LIS excites me because it knows that we can’t expect the next generation of leaders to solve 22nd century problems using 19th century pedagogy and is actively creating a solution.”

– Sasha Morgan

“We’re extremely excited to welcome Sasha onto our Board – her expertise in social mobility will be an enormous contribution to LIS. We’re certainly proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but there’s more to do. We want to set the pace for widening participation in UK higher education. And Sasha will help us do this.”

– Chris Persson, Executive Chairperson
