The Stephen Perse Foundation is a leader in modern independent education, superbly well placed, both to meet the challenges, and to seize the opportunities, presented by its future. Any school, indeed, any group of schools, is only as strong as its people. Stephen Perse boasts exceptional people across all of its schools and nurseries, and invests in their recruitment, development and empowerment to ensure our pupils benefit from excellent role modelling, outstanding support and exceptional teaching. As Principal, I consider this investment in our people to be of utmost importance. 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 our values, people who are passionate about our collective vision of developing the change-makers of the future.
