Announcement of the appointment of new Head

Cranbrook are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Will Chuter to succeed Dr John Weeds as Head. He will be taking up the post in January 2021.

Mr Chuter is currently the Deputy Head and Head of Classics at Gresham’s School in Norfolk, a co-educational independent day and boarding school and was previously at Uppingham School.  Educated at Cranbrook, Mr Chuter is a graduate of Durham University with a First Class Honours in Ancient History, initially teaching English in Italy, then working in educational publishing for a number of years.

Gordon Young, Chair of Governors said, “I hope that everyone will join with Governors in welcoming Mr Chuter to Cranbrook, sharing the enthusiasm and commitment to carry on with school development that Dr Weeds has established during his 8 year Headship, continuing to work with local primary schools to make Cranbrook accessible to a broader cross-section of the community”.

On his appointment Mr Chuter said  “I am honoured and thrilled to have been asked to lead the School. I feel keenly the responsibility to pupils, parents, staff and the local community with which I have been entrusted, and am privileged to serve them at this exciting time in Cranbrook’s development. I am committed to Cranbrook’s ethos of helping children of all backgrounds achieve their best academically, while educating the whole child through strong pastoral care and a vibrant co-curriculum and boarding experience. I have been touched by the warm welcome I have already had from governors, staff and parents. My family and I cannot wait to become part of the community.”
