Tony George is the 20th Headmaster of The King’s School having taken up his position in July 2017.
Mr George is a respected educator with extensive experience in leading large schools. Tony is also well-practised in making a strong contribution to educational debate.
Mr George brings to The King’s School a strong background not only in education, but also in the business and not-for-profit sectors. This diversity of experience provides him with a range of strategic, commercial and leadership skills that will enable him to lead King’s as it seeks to equip our young students for life in a rapidly changing and complex world.
Mr George has tertiary quantifications in Science (BSc), Education (MEd, GradDipEd), Management (MBA), and Theology (BTh[Hons], DipMin). His doctoral studies (PhD) are in the Philosophy of Education with respect to the collaborative roles that religious, philosophic and scientific modes of human knowledge contribute to our understanding of education. His educational experience in the sciences, social sciences, languages and literature means that he is very well placed to lead and engage broadly across the curriculum.
Married to Jen with four adult children, Mr George’s passion is to see children grow in Christian character and integrity. He very much wants to know all the students of The King’s School, day and boarding, their interests and aspirations.
Over the coming weeks, Mr and Mrs George look forward to meeting and consulting with the School community, working collaboratively to build a strategic vision that will position The King’s School to continue to provide educational excellence for generations to come.
