Following the appointment of our current Head, Ben Evans, to Windlesham School in Sussex after 8 years of outstanding service, we are very pleased to welcome Lisa McDonald as our new Head from September 2020.

It teaches the English National Curriculum within the framework of the International Baccalaureate and serves a culturally diverse student population. Pupils go on to the top schools in New York with a number returning to boarding schools in the UK, both processes that Lisa is closely involved with.
