Head of School's Welcome

​I am proud to be the Head of School. It is my pleasure to welcome you to our mixed comprehensive learning community, where we create opportunities, develop learning and share success. When students join Teddington School, they are welcomed into a high achieving, forward thinking and caring community. We have a tradition of academic rigour combined with creative curiosity that is supported by a wide range of extra-curricular provision. Students are encouraged to be ambitious, resilient and inquisitive; which has led to the excellent examination results. Teddington School prides itself on being a fully inclusive, happy and vibrant place to learn. We firmly believe that students achieve best when they feel the genuine security of a community that supports learning and promotes social responsibility. We believe that educating your child is a joint effort between home and school. We work closely with parents, fully involving you in your child’s performance.

Our school values drive everything that we do.

  • Responsibility- for my own achievements; for my own behaviour around school; for my life chances
  • Endeavour- to try my hardest to achieve what I want to achieve- I will never give up
  • Empathy- to understand and share the feelings of those around me, and strive to achieve together
  • Integrity- to uphold moral principles- challenge negativity and be a great team player
  • Innovation- to strive to create new ideas

I am incredibly proud of our exceptionally talented staff that will get the very best out of your child. Together, we will succeed in fulfilling your child’s potential.

Head of School


Teddington School has a long history of success and a very distinctive character which I am proud to ensure continues and develops for the benefit of our young people. Along with the governors and trustees, I ensure the school has principles and priorities that will maintain the standards of academic success and personal care our students and families expect.

Teddington School is a very special school and I am proud to work alongside our Head of School and our staff team to provide the best possible experience and opportunities for our young people.
