Christian Pritchard appointed the 8th Head of Beachborough School
It is with immense pleasure that the Board of Governors announce the appointment of Christian Pritchard as the 8th Head of Beachborough School commencing September 2018. Christian was the unanimous choice following a rigorous recruitment process that attracted a large number of very high calibre applicants.
Beachborough will be Christian’s fourth headship. He will join us from Ranby House, the Preparatory School of Worksop College, where he has been instrumental in the growth and development of the whole school. He has also worked internationally as Head of The British School in Amsterdam and before that as Head of the Junior School at Taipei
With a background in Computer Science, Christian has a keen interest in technology but most importantly, he impressed the Governors with his understanding of the Beachborough ethos of the education of the whole child. He is passionate about the critical journey children take to prepare themselves for life.
In Christian, we believe we have found an inspiring leader who brings enthusiasm, energy, vision, and a commitment to the holistic approach to teaching and learning. We believe he will uphold and enhance Beachborough’s inclusive ethos and reputation for excellence in the preparatory sector, ensuring that all our pupils and staff achieve their full potential.
On his appointment, Christian said:
“I am delighted and honoured to have been appointed as the next Head of Beachborough. It is a remarkable school with a very exciting future. The school’s commitment to happiness and success is one that I very much share, and it is a privilege to be invited to lead the School in the next phase of its development. I look forward to getting to know the school’s staff, parents, friends and alumni – and above all its pupils.”
Christian will be accompanied by his spouse Zoe and their two daughters, aged 10 and 13. Over the coming months there will be opportunities for you to meet with Christian and welcome him into the Beachborough community. Invitations to these events will be sent out during the Spring term.
Mrs. S P Barrett
Chair of the Governors
