The Governors are delighted to announce the appointment of Ms Victoria Ellis as Susan Pepper’s successor as Head of The Study from September 2020.
Ms Ellis is currently Headteacher of Banstead Preparatory School having previously taught and been Director of Studies at Redcliffe School in Chelsea and taught and been Head of Early Years at Guildford High School. After initially completing a first class honours BSc in Accounting and spending two years with Andersen/Deloitte, she turned to a career in teaching and subsequently completed an MA in Educational Leadership and Management. Ms Ellis has overseen the development of Banstead Prep from its founding, out of the merger of three independent, single sex schools, to its current success as a thriving two form entry school.
Ms Ellis says: ‘I am passionate about the value of Early Years and Primary education, giving children the best possible start, while fostering a love of learning and a lifelong ‘can do’ attitude. I am excited to have been appointed to the Headship of The Study, where these values are already so evident, and I am very much looking forward to joining the school community.’
We very much look forward to welcoming Ms Ellis to The Study and are confident that she will build on the school’s existing strong foundations and lead it well in its continuing development.
