What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2015, John O’Neill, previously senior deputy rector for 11 years. MA in medieval and modern history, and PGCE with distinction in history and modern studies from St Andrew’s College of Education. Passionate about history, formerly teaching at St Thomas More School, London (as well as working part-time for an MP at Westminster) and Merchiston Castle School. He joked ‘someone gave me money to teach medieval history’. Assistant housemaster at Glasgow Academy, then housemaster and head of sixth form at Merchiston where, he says, ‘I found my voice’. And that he certainly did, this editor was at the school for an entire day, but all joking aside, undoubtedly articulate, highly educated and dedicated to ‘making changes for the better’. One parent said: ‘He hasn’t rested on his laurels.’
