A New Head for Badminton School

Published Tuesday 17th of January 2012 04:02:53 PM

Badminton School is pleased to announce that Mrs Rebecca Tear will succeed Jan Scarrow who is retiring next summer after 15 highly successful years as Headmistress.

Mrs Rebecca Tear is currently Deputy Head of Wycombe Abbey School, in Buckinghamshire. Prior to that she spent many happy years at St. George�s Ascot, where she held several academic and pastoral responsibilities.

She read Chemistry at Exeter University, before undertaking a PGCE at The Institute of Education, University of London, where she is now completing an MA in Educational Leadership.

Mrs Tear is passionate about helping girls to develop a broad and balanced set of skills and interests. She is equally supportive and understanding of boarding; not only has she run a Sixth Form Boarding House, but she has boarded herself and her children currently board at their prep school, so she appreciates it from several perspectives!

She says that after her recent visit to the School, �The friendly atmosphere and my conversations with students, staff and Governors left me with a really positive impression of Badminton. The girls showed an enormous pride in their school, as well as the ability to be reflective and analytical in their thoughts. To lead such a strong and distinctive community is an exciting prospect and I am very much looking forward to taking up the post in September 2012�.

Jan Scarrow said �I am absolutely delighted that the Governors have found such an excellent candidate as my successor and we are all very confident that Badminton will continue to flourish under Rebecca�s leadership. I am looking forward to working with Rebecca, to facilitate a smooth handover for next September.�
