What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2014, Mark Hoskins BA MA MSc (50s). Previously second master (senior deputy head in modern currency) at RGS Guildford between 2005-2014. Before that, spent eight years at Whitgift, starting as head of economics and business studies in 1997 and then becoming head of middle school. First posts were in highly regarded maintained schools – two years apiece at Rosebery (comp, girls) and Wilson’s (selective grammar, boys). Mixed sixth form here first foray so far into co-education.

Praise from parents comes thick and fast. ‘Impressive’; ‘A lovely guy’; ‘Has accelerated the academic side without losing the breadth.’ Ditto for wife Sharon, whose diligent attendance at events has been approvingly clocked. Has two children, son (at the school) and daughter (distinctly miffed she isn’t as too young).
