Sports Intern

The Stephen Perse FoundationCambridgeshire

We are the Stephen Perse Foundation. Extraordinary things happen here every day.

I am immensely excited to have been appointed as the Principal of the Stephen Perse Foundation and am really looking forward to leading the Foundation in the years ahead. I am excited because all of the evidence I have seen tells me that the Foundation is superbly well placed, both to meet the challenges, and to seize the opportunities, presented by its future as a leader in modern independent education.

Any school, indeed any group of schools, is only as strong as its people. The Stephen Perse Foundation boasts exceptional people across all of its schools and nurseries, and invests in their recruitment, development and empowerment to ensure its pupils benefit from excellent role modelling, outstanding support and exceptional teaching. As incoming Principal, I realise the central importance of continuing this investment.

At the Stephen Perse Foundation, all are united in embracing the modern world and in seeking to help our pupils to find and take their place in it, as confident, socially responsible adults. We seek to attract people who are inspired by this challenge, people who share the Foundation’s values, people who are passionate about our collective vision of developing the change makers of the future.
