Come and meet Chris Skelton, the new Head of Newland House School

Hello from Chris Skelton, the new Head at Newland House School

The autumn term is already well underway, and I am very pleased to have officially taken over as Head of Newland House School. I am very much looking forward to getting to know the vibrant Newland House community and in due course welcoming you as a family and your child to the school.

I am passionately committed to maximising the academic outcomes and enriching the experiences for your children once they join us. Newland House has many excellent qualities and we take great pride in offering a broad, enriching curriculum as well as providing a nurturing and supportive environment where our pupils can become naturally confident and ultimately well-prepared for the next stage of their academic journeys. I am currently working with staff and existing parents to create a progressive Development Plan for the school which will ensure that we explore every opportunity in the coming months to build on these existing excellent practises and foundations.

I would welcome an opportunity to meet with you and tell you more about my views on education and my aim for excellence in all that the school does. Prospective parents andparents of children already registered to join the school are invited to attend one of our usual autumn term Welcome Mornings where I will be explaining these in more detail. As well as hearing directly from me there will also be an opportunity to meet my dedicated team, including our new Deputy Head (Pre-Prep), Sophia Excell and time to tour the school again, should you wish to do so.

If you are able to attend one of the following events which all start at 9.30am, please do complete our short online form at

20th September, 18th October, 22th November

There will be further events throughout the spring and summer term next year and of course, if you would prefer to meet me in person then do liaise with our Admissions Manager, Jane Tosetti admissions@newlandhouse who will be able to arrange a personal appointment for you later this term.

I look forward to meeting you and Welcoming you to newland House School.

Chris Skelton, Head
