Do you have children?

Yes, 3: Alexander (8), Cleo (5) and Lettie (3)

How long have you been at the school?

Since September 2020

How many years have you held a head teachers post?

Almost two years.

What are the particular strengths of your school?

In a school set up for boarding and day pupils, we have the enormous twin benefits of time and pastoral expertise. When these combine with open-minded children in a beautiful and expansive setting, there is no limit to what can be achieved.

What is your vision for this school?

That our values of Courage, Creativity and Courtesy encourage every child to ‘have a go’ and to do so with ingenuity, good grace and kindness, instilling a belief that they can have a positive influence on the world around them.

How do you equip a child for life in the 21st century?

The ability to master technology rather than become enslaved by it, combined with an awareness of a responsibility to care for the environment, will produce children who have both the mindset and skillset to approach the future with confidence.
