Meet the Principal - Dr Daniel Sturdy

Education has been in Dan's family ever since his mother, Jill Sturdy, founded a school 40 years ago for his adopted brothers and sisters.

Since then he has gone on to qualify from universities in Oxford and Stirling with a degree and a doctorate in psychology and philosophy respectively, before going on to apply his expertise and his passion for education to contemporary schooling.

The ethos? A combination of the best of the traditional (with a strong emphasis on outdoor adventure) and the new - internationalism, technology and entrepreneurialism.

Dan's concerned about the effects that spending infinite time in cyberspace is going to have upon our children's physical and mental health. So he's created a school which offers a blend of the ethereal and the academic, in a structure which children enjoy.
