Prospective families will have the opportunity to meet Mr Taylor at the school’s next Open Morning, which is taking place on Saturday, May 8.

Both virtual and on-site tours are available and attendees are requested to book their space online.

Mr Taylor said: “It is a privilege to be part of such a vibrant and supportive school community.

"Lockers Park is a purposefully small school. With just 165 pupils, our boys enjoy highly individualised learning to achieve excellent academic results.

"And as a small school, we promote a real energy for life, where every boy has the chance to try everything there is on offer.”

Mr Taylor is a keen sportsman and enjoys playing cricket, rugby and golf, family walks and cooking in the great outdoors.
