What the school says...

Friendly, relaxed even, he is nevertheless utterly professional and we doubt he’s ever off duty. Parents describe him as ‘charismatic’ and ‘very genuine, not corporate’ and, ‘best head ever.’ He knows every inch of his school, is proud of its thoughtful developments and is greeted cheerfully by the boys as we pass by. ‘He’s outside the school every morning at 8, welcoming the boys in, he’s an amazing figurehead,’ said one very impressed mother.
