Craig McCarthy was appointed Headmaster in 2012. Having first qualified as a solicitor, Craig later found his true vocation whilst living in a prestigious Scottish boarding school where his wife Emily taught English. He began his teaching career at a thriving Perthshire preparatory school. Science and all sports are his passions and he very much enjoys running astronomy, chess and his children's philosophy sessions, that we call Brights. Craig and Emily have two boys, Patrick and Thomas.
