Headmaster of Alleyn's Junior School
We are delighted to announce that Mr Simon Severino, Headmaster of St Andrew’s Prep School, Eastbourne, has been appointed to succeed Mr Mark O’Donnell as Headmaster of Alleyn’s Junior School from 31st August 2015.
Mr Severino, who is married and has two young children, has considerable experience in junior schools over the past twenty years. He read Geography at Oxford University, before starting his career at Culford Prep in Suffolk. From there, he went to Dulwich Prep London, where he was Head of Geography and Deputy Head (Head of Middle School). Since 2010 he has been Headmaster of St Andrew’s Prep, an IAPS school which is incorporated with Eastbourne College, an HMC senior school.
He believes passionately in holistic education, sharing with us a view that academic excellence and first-rate pastoral care are best served by a vibrant co-curriculum and a clear ethos anchored in shared values. Mr Severino is very much looking forward to joining the Alleyn’s community, where he and his family will be warmly welcomed.
In the interim before Mr Severino takes up his Headship, Mrs Alison Wright, current Deputy Head of the Junior School, will be Acting Head throughout the academic year 2014-15, working closely with Mr Severino and Dr Savage (Headmaster of Alleyn’s School) to ensure a smooth handover. Together, they will ensure a continuity of care and expertise for the children, staff and parents of the Junior School in the months and years to come.
