Across our schools, we have developed a collaborative approach to leadership. Each Head leads their own school, whilst also engaging with colleagues to be leaders for the whole Foundation. 

Head of Rosedale House

David Hewlett

I have worked at the Stephen Perse Foundation for a number of years; previously working at Dame Bradbury’s School, in total adding up to 12 years of experience teaching primary age children. Throughout this time I have enjoyed the roles of form teacher, head of boys' sport, science coordinator and taking charge of shaping the direction of digital learning within the Foundation's junior schools. 

I firmly believe that children need to step out of their comfort zone and meet these challenges head on. Challenges leads to success if the right 'toolkits' are in place to develop a learner's ability to think critically: promoting a level of independence that sets them up for taking on the world. 

Whilst 'off-duty' my family (3 children, a supportive wife and a not so supportive dog) and I enjoy venturing off to the coast for beach games, family walks and surfing. 

I am thrilled to be working at Rosedale House, working closely with Mrs Graham and colleagues across all of the Stephen Perse Schools, I aim to nurture the energy and opportunity that this unique school has to offer. 

Our Foundation is a vibrant, dynamic place to work
