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. 

Director of Educational Strategy

Alice Heywood

Alice brings with her a wealth of knowledge, having held several senior roles across many areas at the Stephen Perse Foundation for a number of years. 

Before holding her current position of Director of Educational Strategy, Alice was Head of School and Head of Curriculum, working across the 3-11 age range at our Junior School sites, both in Cambridge and in Saffron Walden. 

Alice prides herself on knowing staff, students and parents well. It is one of her greatest pleasures to have had the opportunity to observe many students and families continue their educational journeys successfully from Junior School to Senior School, Sixth Form and beyond. 

As Director of Educational Strategy, Alice is able to use her experience to maintain and drive innovation and creativity across our Junior Schools to keep the Foundation at the forefront of education, preparing students for their continued development. 

Having studied maths at university here in Cambridge and represented the university for netball, she is known for a particular passion for maths and still teaches PE to students aged 3-7 across our Early Years and Junior School settings, both in Cambridge and Saffron Walden.

Our Foundation is a vibrant, dynamic place to work
