Liz Truss: Biography, Early Life and Education
Mary Elizabeth Truss, known as Liz Truss, was born in Oxford, England, to parents John Kenneth and Priscilla Mary Truss (née Grasby).
Her mother, a Latin teacher’s daughter at Bolton School, was a nurse, a teacher, and a supporter of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
Her father is an emeritus professor of pure mathematics at the University of Leeds. According to Liz Truss, her parents are “on the left of Labour.”
When Truss later ran as a Conservative for election to Parliament, her mother agreed to run a campaign for her while her father declined.
When Truss was four years old, her family relocated to Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland. They stayed there from 1979 to 1985, when Truss attended West Primary School.
Later, she attended Roundhay School in Leeds’ Roundhay neighbourhood, which she later claimed had “let down” students.
After that, she spent a year in Canada. In contrast to her experience at Roundhay School, Truss has lauded its coherent curriculum and the Canadian mindset that it was “very excellent to be top of the class.”
She completed her philosophy, politics, and economics studies at Merton College in Oxford in 1996.
