New member of Advisory Board

We are delighted to announce that parent and seasoned educator, Rob Williams will be joining us as parent advisor on our Advisory Board replacing Sue Leach following her departure at the end of this term.

Sue was Chair of our PTA and member of our Advisory Board throughout her son Joe’s lengthy time at Beech Lodge and we are extremely grateful for all her input and support she has given us over the years. We wish Joe the very best success in his chosen career as a vintage car mechanic – a job we know he will thrive in and we will miss them both!

Rob and his wife Maria have two children, one of whom attends Beech Lodge. Following two commercial roles in the hospitality industry, the second experience was especially important for Rob in shaping his expectations of what an education must provide. A founding member of the Pre Senior Baccalaureate, a skills-based learning platform now adopted by nearly 50 schools in the UK,  for most of his 20 years as a Prep School Headmaster, a drive to instil this ethos has been at the top of the agenda. Recently retired as Headmaster of Bishopsgate School in the summer of 2022, the model he left received the rubber stamp of approval by ISI of what this modern approach to education can achieve.
