The Council of Rossall School have announced the appointment of Mr Jeremy Quartermain as the school’s new Head from 1st August 2018. 

Jeremy is currently Deputy Head (Academic) at Brentwood School. He was educated at Colchester Royal Grammar School before studying for a history degree at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. He completed an M.Phil. in medieval history at Trinity College, Dublin, where he also tutored undergraduates within the department. Following a period of teaching English overseas, Jeremy completed his PGCE at the University of East Anglia. 

Appointed to teach history and classical civilisation at Gresham’s School in 2007, Jeremy was subsequently appointed Head of Sixth Form in 2010. In this role he was responsible for the day-to-day running and strategic development of the Sixth Form.  

Jeremy has continued to work as a freelance educator for the Holocaust Educational Trust and, more recently, became a compliance inspector for independent schools. 

Reflecting upon his appointment, Jeremy said: “It is an honour and privilege to be chosen to serve this wonderful school and, as a family, we are looking forward to joining this incredibly warm and welcoming community on the Fylde coast. I am committed to building upon the excellent work of Ms Elaine Purves and my ambition for the school and my commitment to each and every member of this community is boundless.” 

Current Head, Ms Elaine Purves, will leave Rossall School in August, following a five-year post, to take up another headship in Brussels.
