We are delighted to announce that Sean Price has been appointed to take over from Greg Taylor as the new Head Teacher of the Junior School at King Edward’s School, Bath.
Sean joins King Edward’s from Westonbirt Prep School where he has been Headmaster for the last seven years. Sean is a hugely passionate educationalist and continues to be an enthusiastic hands-on teacher. After gaining a degree from Cardiff University in English Language Studies, Sean worked in the sales industry before completing his PGCE at the University of Bath. He has since honed his skills and experience across both the state and independent sectors.
Sean also holds various roles within IAPS, the Independent Association of Prep Schools, of which the Junior School is a member, including serving as the National Sports Committee Chair and Director.
Ahead of his move to King Edward’s, Sean said: “I am delighted to be joining King Edward’s School. It is a school with a fantastic reputation, both nationally and locally, with an impressive heritage and record of providing an innovative and first-class education for its pupils. I am really looking forward to joining the King Edward’s community and to meeting staff, parents and pupils in the coming months.”
Mike Horrocks-Taylor, Acting Headmaster at King Edward’s School, adds: “Sean’s personal ethos that children should be exposed to as many opportunities as possible to ignite their passions, fuel their self-belief and to develop them as learners, both within their comfort zones and when challenged to try something new, chimes very naturally with the approach at our Junior School. We are confident that he will build on the Junior School’s existing strengths and the excellent work undertaken by Greg and his team, as the School enters its next exciting phase of development.”
Sean joins the Junior School at the beginning of the Spring Term in 2024. His appointment follows the decision by Greg Taylor to step down as Head Teacher of the Junior School after a long and distinguished career at KES.
