Tim Skipwith joined the Junior School as Head in September 2012 having spent the previous ten years teaching Biology in the Senior School.
For the last six of these he was the Head of Middle School (ages 13-16) and a member of the Master’s Advisory Committee. Under his watch the school achieved year upon year of record GCSE results.
As an undergraduate Tim read Biological Sciences at Edinburgh where he was also awarded a Blue in Hockey.
Tim writes: "I loved my own time at school and was fortunate to have had inspiring, patient and committed teachers who gently steered me towards exploring and developing my interests and potential in all sorts of areas. I knew then that I wanted to do the same and remain passionate about each individual child feeling understood, valued and encouraged to offer their best. Education is a lifelong journey and I am thrilled now to have the opportunity to focus on the beginnings of the voyage. The Junior School is every bit as exciting as I had hoped. The atmosphere is simply fizzing with energy; it is vibrant, friendly, purposeful and fun. The boys are engaging, enthusiastic and, above all, happy.”
