Meet all of our Wonderful Staff

Meet the Eaton Square Schools Group Headmaster

I am honoured to be the Headmaster of Eaton Square Schools Group where we are able to offer continuous education to our children from the moment they join us in our Nursery Schools until the end of their journey in the Sixth Form.

Tradition meets innovation every day here through a combination of excellent, motivational staff and access to some of London’s greatest institutions. The ‘old fashioned’ values of good manners, team spirit, self-discipline, concern for the welfare and rights of others, as well as an understanding of the importance of responsibilities, are ideals which are close to my own heart.

These values are timeless and our pupils leave with confidence not arrogance, with kindness and humility not selfishness and brashness, with courtesy not rudeness, and with a passion for learning and a belief that anything is possible.

Within our School we have always prided ourselves on allowing each child to flourish. We firmly believe that every single child has the ability to succeed and it is our job to furnish the children with the tools they need to do so. As one walks around our buildings one encounters happy, engaged, good-natured and inquisitive pupils. They are constantly unearthing new ways in which to learn and develop.

The concept of the school community is immensely important to me and the School should be seen as an extension of the family. Our Eaton Square family reflects within it the rich, culturally diverse nature of London and as an education for life there can be no better foundation.

Meet the Headmaster

I am delighted to be the inaugural Headmaster of Eaton Square Upper School, Mayfair. It is an unparalleled opportunity to design and deliver an education specifically tailored to meet the needs of central London in the early 21st century. We will provide an educational experience which builds on the best parts of tradition, while constantly being alert to the requirements of our fast changing world.

As part of Eaton Square Schools Group, our school will have a wealth of experience and resources to build from, and I will be working closely with Sebastian Hepher to ensure the educational aims of the group are maintained. Excellent academic achievement delivered through the highest quality teaching will be the corner-stone of our education.

We will also continue Eaton Square Schools’ tradition of promoting family values: we hope that many families will be actively engaged in the education of their children, and we will respond in turn, by being flexible, understanding, and receptive to the requirements of life in central London. I would be delighted to meet with you to discuss your aspirations for your children, and the hopes and requirements you have for their education.

School Governors

Eaton Square School is part of the Minerva Education group of independent schools. Our aim at Minerva Education is to deliver inspiring learning, which nurtures a child’s talents and helps them achieve their full potential.

Each and every school will retain its own special identity, traditions and ethos and Minerva will consciously avoid making any school feel as if it is ‘run’ by Minerva. However, through our “Inspiring Learning” education improvement programme we believe that the education provision in the schools will improve, with our teachers working together to share best practice.

Our Governors come from a wide range of backgrounds, including business and education, and all are deeply committed to the school’s continuing success.
