Mr Luke Bromwich is to take over as Head in September 2019. Mr Bromwich, 35, has been appointed following the retirement of Karen Cordon after 22 years.
Mr Bromwich, who is currently Deputy Headteacher of Kellett School, the British International School in Hong Kong, was chosen to lead the school after a rigorous selection process carried out by the Governors. Chairman of Governors Svante Adde said: “He was our unanimous choice and stood out as the leading contender in a very strong field of candidates, both from this country and abroad.”
Mr Bromwich grew up in Devon and studied Engineering at Exeter University before pursuing his passion in education which eventually led him to Hong Kong where he has been living for the last six years.
FUNDRAISING FOR FORMER PUPIL
Pupils and staff have been doing everything from selling plants to hiking the highways to raise money in memory of former pupil Evie Clover. Evie, who died aged 13 in January 2018, was a former pupil of St Margaret’s Preparatory School and the charity Evie’s Gift set up by her parents has been chosen as its charity of the year.
St Margaret’s also hosted ‘Evie’s Pink Parade’ Fashion Show (see pictire) which was organised by current and former members of the school community. The evening was a resounding success and ticket sales and auction prizes raised in excess of £2,500.
Evie’s Gift aims to give financial help to parents whose children have been admitted to hospital with a life threatening or life limiting condition and to fund research into brain cancer. Mr Clover said: “Evie may not be with us any longer, but her memory will live on through the work of Evie's Gift and we hope to make a huge impact on the families that we help.”
LEARNING OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM BRONZE AWARD
ST Margaret's has become one of a small group of schools in Wiltshire to be recognised by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom.
St Margaret’s Preparatory School has been awarded the Bronze award, after undertaking a rigorous assessment.
A report by assessor Kim Hudson said ‘St Margaret’s Preparatory School is offering its pupils a large array of real-world learning experiences in their school grounds and beyond the school premises. I have no hesitation in recommending them for LOtC Schools Bronze Mark.’
