Mrs Loren Macallister - Prep Head designate

We are delighted to announce that we have appointed Mrs Loren Macallister as the new Head of Ewell Castle Preparatory School, following a rigorous recruitment process led by the Principal and the Chair of Governors. Mrs Macallister joins us from Shrewsbury House Preparatory School in Surbiton, where she currently serves as the Academic Deputy Head; she is also currently engaged by ISI as a Team and Compliance Inspector.

Mrs Macallister fully appreciates the importance of a seamless continuity of education and children’s personal development by putting young people first to “become architects of their own learning.” It is this child-centred approach and focus on the values of Ewell Castle which inspired her to join our community as a colleague, confident that all can excel in becoming their best selves.

Mrs Macallister’s qualifications include a BA (Hons) degree focused on Languages and Linguistics; a separate post-graduate Honours degree in French Literature and Translation; a Higher Diploma in Education (PGCE - awarded with Distinction); and a National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPQSL).  She is an accomplished pianist and organist and has also successfully undertaken the Three Peaks Challenge.

I am sure that you will all join me in extending a very warm welcome to Mrs Macallister, as she takes up her position as Head of Ewell Castle Preparatory School on 1st September 2021.
