Akeley Wood School's new headteacher, Georgina Masefield, brings with her a wealth of experience. Teaching since the 1990s, Georgina has assumed various roles including advisory and consultancy, school inspections and managing head teachers.

Georgina explains: “I have enjoyed working in different roles in education, however my passion lies in teaching and I intend to use my experiences to benefit each child at Akeley Wood School. We believe in the potential of every child and in providing a committed, family-friendly and safe community which nurtures individual self-worth, wellbeing and a sense of belonging while preparing children for a successful future outside education.” 

Georgina joins the Senior School from Northbridge House in Hampstead, London. 

Kara Dowson is also a new addition to the Junior School, joining in the capacity of Deputy Head.

Kara joins Akeley Wood from a large school in Dubai where she was Assistant Headteacher with key responsibilities for leading Mathematics and Innovation.  

She says: “I am delighted to join the fantastic team at Akeley Wood Junior School. It is such an inspiring place to work and learn. The whole school community have been extremely welcoming and I look forward to working together to ensure every child achieves their full potential.”
