New head for Glendower

Nina Kingsmill Moore will take up her new role at the prep school in September

Glendower School has announced the appointment of Nina Kingsmill Moore as the new headmistress of Glendower Preparatory School. Moore will take up the role in September.

Rupert Harrison, chair of the board of governors, said: “We received an excellent response to the post, and this made the selection process even harder. Mrs Nina Kingsmill Moore was chosen from a final shortlist of outstanding candidates, and we are thrilled she has accepted our offer. It’s clear she shares a passion for education excellence with Glendower, as well as an excitement for inspirational, skills-based learning and extracurricular enrichment.”

The most valuable gift we can give our children is to enable them to become critical thinkers who are curious about the world around them

Born in the UK, Moore spent her educational years in South Africa, before returning to England. She is said to be “a passionate educationalist, who loves nothing more than watching children flourish in a warm and stimulating environment”.

Moore is currently deputy headmistress – and a maths and geography teacher – at Lambrook School in Berkshire, where she has spent the last nine years.

Prior to this, she worked at Wetherby, the Unicorn School in Kew, and Upton House School in Windsor. She is also a governor at one of the Langley Academy Trust Schools, where she is vice-chair of the governing body.

Moore said of her appointment: “I am thrilled to have been given this incredible opportunity to build on the excellent legacy of Mrs Sarah Knollys. I look forward to getting to know all the wonderful girls at Glendower, and working very closely with the staff and parents who make up the Glendower community, while leading the school in its next chapter. I am passionate about education, and believe the most valuable gift we can give our children is to enable them to become critical thinkers who are curious about the world around them.”
