The next academic year will be the last for the current Headmaster of Brentwood School, Ian Davies, who has announced his intention to retire in summer 2019 after 15 years.
Under his leadership the school has flourished both in the academic and co-curricular spheres. The school has enjoyed its two most successful years for examination results, and students have gained success in national competitions by winning finals in Public Speaking, Fencing, Gymnastics and Netball, to name a few. The strong leadership team that he has around him is committed to maintaining and developing this leading position for the future.
Mr Davies is particularly proud that the school has developed excellent links and widened relationships with all aspects of the Brentwood community; including local charities, churches, schools, musical, sporting, theatrical and artistic organisations, always emphasising that the school is at the very heart of the local area. The fact that a fifth of all pupils at Brentwood receive some sort of financial assistance from the school is testament to the school's commitment to social mobility. The aim is that this number continues to increase in future years.
Governors have appointed a leading Educational Recruitment Agency to help them lead the search for a suitable successor.
