First headmaster in over 100 years to join Micklefield

Micklefield School has announced the appointment of Ryan Ardé, the school’s first headmaster since it was founded in 1910

Last December, Lyn Rose announced she would be retiring after 13 years as headmistress at the end of the summer term this year. Ardé brings with him 20 years of educational experience, most recently as a trust headteacher of two South London primary schools and safeguarding lead for 14 academies within the STEP Academy Trust.

Ardé comments: “Mrs Rose has left a strong legacy at Micklefield School. ‘Achievement through hard work, strength through kindness,’ is the foundation of my educational philosophy, which I look forward to sharing with Micklefield pupils.”
