Homefield Preparatory School appoints a new Headmaster
We are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Headteacher, Mr John Towers, to start in September 2014.
We have been through a very robust process supported by specialists in the educational sector. Given the excellent reputation and potential of Homefield we were able to attract some excellent candidates. We worked for many days, arranged rounds of interviews and assessments, and are delighted that we have succeeded in making an excellent appointment.
John is an exceptional educationalist and a strong leader with quiet relentless energy. His experience includes a very successful Headship; being Gifted and Talented Lead Officer for Kensington & Chelsea supporting the most mathematically gifted children in collaboration with senior schools and, most recently, as Director of Education of the Reach to Teach Charity where he has worked almost from the start expanding and building its programme. John lives in Surrey with his wife, Emma and children Millie, Oscar, Imogen and Felix.
Mr Towers comments: I am delighted to be appointed Headteacher and it is a great privilege to be able to join such a happy and vibrant school of such heritage and reputation. It is an exciting time for Homefield with much academic, pastoral, musical and sporting achievement to be nurtured and developed further.
Dr Inderpreet Dhingra, Chairman of the Governing Board, is very pleased to be welcoming Mr Towers to Homefield: "I am really excited that John Towers is joining Homefield in September. He is truly an inspiring leader, not afraid of hard work and has a passionate commitment to the academic, personal and social development of children. We expect a great deal of him and I have no doubt that he will continue the trend of exceptional headship that Homefield has had to date. Undoubtedly he will enjoy what makes Homefield a wonderfully happy place for our boys providing an all-round excellent education."Published: February 5 2014
