She takes over from Mrs Susan Pepper, who is retiring after ten successful years at the helm.

After initially completing a first class honours BSc in Accounting and working at Andersen/Deloitte, she turned to a career in teaching, and subsequently completed an MA in Educational Leadership and Management. Miss Ellis told Primary Times, “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 at this exciting time in its long history.”
This is an important time in the history of The Study, with the near completion of its ambitious building work at its Wilberforce House site which includes six new classrooms, a performing arts theatre, a library and a new visitors’ welcome area.
