His wealth of experience extends abroad as well, David was Physics co-ordinator at Bangkok Patana School for a number of years previous to holding roles at Chase Terrace High School and Newcastle-Under-Lyme college.

He commented: “I am very proud to be Portland Place School’s new headmaster. It has an almost unique place in London day schools and a very particular purpose. As The Good School’ Guide describes us, 'small, nurturing and refreshingly relaxed. A haven of creativity in the pushy, academically competitive world of London day schools. A place for engaged, lively, normal kids.' I share that vision and purpose and look forward to leading Portland Place’s development in the coming years as new educational challenges have to be met.”
