We are pleased to have worked with St Leonards on the appointment of Simon Brian as their new Head from next year. Having held Deputy Headships at Charterhouse and Cheltenham College, Simon brings to St Leonards extensive experience in top boarding schools and a deep understanding of the IB curriculum.
“This is such an exciting time to lead St Leonards into its future and I feel honoured to be appointed as Head from the coming academic year. I share the philosophy of education and the passion for the holistic development of children that Michael has so innovatively and successfully led over the last twelve years.
The strength of the School’s core values and its IB ethos, its commitment to the very best in pastoral care, and the enrichment provided by the School’s brilliant co-curricular programme are essential in nurturing young people, and in readying them for their next steps.
I will continue to build on the School’s academic ambition, its pioneering heritage and its warm home-from-home community to ensure that the future for all those at St Leonards remains bright and hugely aspirational. Veronique, the boys and I are all really looking forward to moving to St Andrews and becoming part of the welcoming school community.”
Simon will join the school in August 2021.
