Meet the Head
Meet the Head

I am passionate about the value of Early Years and Primary education, giving children the best possible start while fostering a love of learning and a lifelong ‘can do’ attitude. I believe education goes beyond examination success; children can only achieve when they feel happy and safe and when they’ve been given the skills to tackle new challenges, the courage to overcome obstacles and the opportunity to succeed. I place no limits on expectations. Children astound me every day, fuelling my enthusiasm for teaching. I’ve worked in boarding schools and single-sex independent schools, as a Headteacher. ​

In these rapidly evolving, increasingly global times, I am excited to be involved in the education of young people and to be leading Banstead Prep School. We’re a forward-thinking school with a talented and experienced staff team and the facilities to enable the broadest of opportunities as part of an engaging, innovative and exciting curriculum. This combination enables our children to be inspired, to work with others and to enjoy learning, both in and out of the classroom, and to go on to their senior school of choice and take charge of their world.
