24th August 2020 — Miss Vicky Ellis will take over the reins at the thriving all girls prep school from September. Most recently, Miss Ellis was Headteacher of Banstead Prep School, having previously taught and been Director of Studies at Redcliffe School in Chelsea, and taught and been Head of Early Years at Guildford High School. 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.
She will now take the lead at The Study Prep, established in 1893, and based on two beautiful sites adjacent to Wimbledon Common. It is proudly non-selective at 4+, and is renowned for its nurturing, creative ethos. Academic rigour and excellent 11+ results are also hallmarks of the school, and its already outstanding record of scholarships and offers from leading senior schools has been surpassed this year, with a total of 40 scholarships offered to the 2020 Year 6 cohort. This brings the total of scholarship offers over the last three years to an impressive 104.
Miss Ellis says: ‘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 indeed an exciting 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. www.thestudprep.co.uk
