Since 2009, Greg Evans BSc MA PGCE. Was director of studies at Sussex House for five years and at King’s House Richmond for nine years before that. Early 50s. Genuinely loves his job and lives for the school. ‘I always put the boys first. I keep their interests front and centre when making any decisions,’ he explains. Wife is Icelandic, and they regularly escape to their place in Reykjavík. Teenage son and daughter. Self-confessed sports nut. Recently taken up spinning at the gym in an attempt to stay fit. Currently enjoying the challenge of learning the trumpet for first time. ‘I am not an empire-builder, but I like to think I have improved the place.’ Boys adore him; parents hold him in high esteem. An exceptionally dedicated head.

Special Education Needs

At Tower House we have a SENCo who monitors boys requiring learning support. Boys are withdrawn mainly from English for their English support lessons. Boys receive support lessons before school or during timetabled slots. Support lessons are taught 1:1, or in small groups according to the boys' needs. The SENCo liaises closely with staff, parents and relevant outside agencies.
