Edenhurst Preparatory School has welcomed Emma Mousley as its new Headteacher.
Her appointment makes her the first female Headteacher at the independent school, which caters for children aged three months to 11 years.
Most recently she was Deputy Head of Pastoral and Wellbeing at Repton Al Barsha, Dubai, where she had taught since 2013. Emma has also taught at St John’s Beaumont Preparatory School in Windsor and Yorston Lodge School in Knutsford, Cheshire.
Emma said, “I’m excited and honoured to be taking over as headteacher and joining the Edenhurst family. As soon as I had visited the school, met the pupils and seen how happy, confident and willing they were I knew that Edenhurst was a place that shares my educational philosophy.”
“Edenhurst is a school that educates the whole child, putting their wellbeing and happiness first, which strongly resonates with my own beliefs. It’s a place where children are allowed to enjoy their childhood and leave equipped with the knowledge, skills, attributes – and friendships – that will help them flourish in a rapidly changing world.”
Rated ‘Excellent’ in all areas in its last ISI Inspection Report, Edenhurst supports older pupils during the transition to senior school, including preparing them for entrance examinations at leading Independent and Grammar schools across the region.
