I hope to be an inspirational and supportive presence in House.”Nick Gandy, Incoming Housemaster
Kerrison is a place where pupils are able to be themselves, express themselves, take risks and become more independent – a House that becomes a home. Pupils are encouraged to have a passion for, and a commitment to learning, and to have a genuine enthusiasm and appreciation of academic study. They will also be given the opportunity to demonstrate leadership, assume responsibility and be innovative in the House and in the wider school community.
Nick is passionate about the development of every child in his care and his aim is to provide a caring and nurturing environment where all pupils are able to flourish and to realise their potential.
The House promotes a wide-range of enjoyable co-curricular activity to bring the House together as well as to develop character, integrity, confidence and the whole person.
Nick sees his role to be an inspirational and supportive presence in House in equal measures, and he strives to ensure that every pupil who leaves Kerrison House is prepared for the ever-changing world that they will face as adults.
