Seaford College is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Alastair Brown as the Head of Seaford College Prep School from September 2015. Alastair is a proven and inspirational leader who identifies with the ethos and vision of Seaford College. He is an innovative educationalist with a key focus on the development of the individual. Alastair is currently Deputy Head of Dean Close Prep School in Cheltenham and is also a highly successful Geography teacher and a talented sportsman. He has played national league hockey and county 2nd level cricket. Alastair enjoys classical, choral, popular and jazz music and plays the trumpet. He also has a keen interest in all other extra-curricular activities.
Alastair is married to Ruth and they have two children: Josh (14) and Sam (9) currently in Years 9 and 5. He believes in high quality communication and likes to make himself accessible at drop off time and at the end of the day. He believes that school should be fun and that “academic success is a by-product of good education. This is important because children’s self-esteem in one area spills into another enabling them to express themselves and make progress.”
John Green, Headmaster said: “We are all absolutely delighted that we have been able to attract and catch Alastair, there are very exciting times ahead! We very much look forward to working with him over the coming years as he builds on the many strengths of the Prep School. Alastair will take up the reins in September 2015 but in the meanwhile, of course, School life will continue apace under the leadership of Sebastian Rees. The Prep School has flourished under Sebastian and Gillian Rees and we now look forward to a future era of further development under the dynamic and ambitious leadership of Alastair Brown.”
