What The Good Schools Guide says

Executive Principal

Since 2018, Tanya Moran, a Canadian maths and science graduate, taught in New Zealand before starting in UK at The Harrodian school, rising to deputy head over 11 years. In 2011 she co-founded a free primary school, Thomson House, in nearby Richmond upon Thames, where she is still involved and shortly after became co-founder and principal of The Independent School, providing support for specific learning difficulties (SpLD) such as dyslexia and dyspraxia. On the change to working in a special school she says, ‘It’s the passion I’ve found: I try to see the world through their eyes so I can understand what they need and that inspires me. We can take a child who has experienced so many challenges and help them learn. There’s not a day when I’m not smiling.’
