The Head's Welcome

It is with great joy and a deep sense of honour that I have assumed the role of Head at Homefield Preparatory School. From the moment I first visited in early October, I felt a warm embrace and a very real sense of purpose within this community. I am excited about the incredible journey that lies ahead.

Homefield has a rich history of academic accomplishment, but also an unwavering commitment to pastoral excellence. It is an environment that values discipline and healthy competition, whilst also encouraging creative expression and community spirit. We create a school environment that not only educates minds and fosters a lifelong love of learning, but also shapes the character of our boys, encouraging the emotional and social growth that is integral to success in all aspects of their lives.

The boys are happy at Homefield, they go about their day smiling and having fun whilst being polite, inquisitive and curious. I am steadfast in the belief that "the boys come first." Every decision we make, every initiative we undertake, is grounded in our commitment to providing the best possible environment for the growth and happiness of the boys. Their welfare and success is ever at the forefront of our collective efforts.

Moreover, I firmly believe that a school thrives when its staff flourish, and a key component of this is an institution in which ethical and moral leadership is a lived reality. As we strive to provide the best possible learning environment for our boys, we will nurture a workplace that trains and retains our dedicated staff; supports their professional and personal growth; and encourages an environment in which integrity, empathy and a commitment to shared values form the bedrock of all our interactions.

I am proud that we are developing our curriculum to better reflect the needs of our modern society and the dynamic nature of our world, equipping our boys with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary to confidently navigate future challenges and opportunities. This includes a commitment to diversity, technological literacy, and a broad understanding of global issues.

Working in partnership - Boy, Parent, School - we will continue to shape Homefield Preparatory School - a first-rate educational environment, and one which promises the utmost success and happiness for our boys, both in the present and for the future. I am excited about the incredible journey that lies ahead and welcome you to visit the school to see for yourself what an amazing place it is.
