What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2019, Mr Silas Edmonds, MA. First headship. Previously spent 11 years at Surbiton High, starting as vice principal, becoming senior school head five years in and adding role of acting principal late in 2018. Before that, assistant head at Wallington County, where he’d started as senior English teacher in 1999.

His wife, former headteacher at a special school, is now CEO for Farms for City Children.
