Knighton House School was thrilled to welcome pupils and staff back to start this new academic year last week. As well as many new pupils we also have our new Headmaster, Robin Gainher and his wife Ali, starting their time at Knighton. Robin and Ali are a formidable team with significant experience; most recently Robin was Head at Beeston Hall in Norfolk and as parents of three girls there is not much they don’t know about building confidence in girls.
Robin Gainher says “As the new Head at Knighton I’ve been given a wonderful opportunity to take the school forward into the next phase of its history. Building on the recent ISI report of ‘Excellent’ in all areas I believe Knighton can become a leader for educating girls. I can’t wait to work alongside the fantastic team of teachers here to start building an innovative exciting academic curriculum fit for the 21st Century and a co-curricular programme to excite and inspire the girls. This means road testing our current provision and asking two key questions: Is it fit for purpose? Does it match our ambitions for the girls? If not, then we have to be brave enough to make changes. Exciting times lie ahead for Knighton”.
