The Governing Body of the Corporation of Oundle School is pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs Sarah Kerr-Dineen as the new Head of Oundle School. She will take up her position at the School in September 2015, following the retirement of Mr Charles Bush after ten years of distinguished and dynamic leadership.

Mrs Kerr-Dineen is currently the Warden of Forest School. She was educated at Steyning Grammar School, West Sussex before going on to gain an MA in English at Trinity College, Cambridge and to pursue graduate study at Christ Church, Oxford. Her teaching career spans over twenty years, including thirteen at St Edward's, Oxford where she was also a Boarding Housemistress and ultimately Director of Studies. She moved to Forest School as its Warden in 2009, where she has taken the lead in many educational developments, including the realisation of a 'Centre of Innovation' in the heart of the school. Mrs Kerr-Dineen is married with four children aged between 18 and 26 and her interests include reading, walking, the theatre and music.

Mr Julian Tregoning, Chairman of the Oundle School Governing Body, said, 'We were delighted with the number of excellent candidates who applied for the position and believe that we have appointed an outstanding leader in Sarah Kerr-Dineen. Sarah has a proven track record of achievement as a Head as well as a depth of understanding and experience of boarding. She truly identifies with Oundle School's ethos and heritage and is especially well qualified to lead the School into the future.'

Mrs Sarah Kerr-Dineen said, "I am honoured to be taking on the role of Head of Oundle School. Oundle is one of the top co-educational boarding and day schools in the country, with a long and distinguished history. I feel a real empathy for its distinctive nature and I am looking forward with great excitement to building on the considerable strengths of the School over the coming years.'
