New Head Appointed

18 May 2017


With the retirement of Headmistress, Mrs Catherine Jawaheer at the end of the summer term, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Neil Walker as Westfield School's new Headmaster.

Jani Keep (Chair of Governors) says

The whole school has been involved with the interview process and we are delighted to be welcoming Mr Walker to join us in September.  Westfield has been producing high achieving young women since 1960, and we believe that Mr Walker will be a great asset to our school, and a strong Headmaster who will respect and uphold Westfield's values and ethos.  In taking over the reins from Mrs Jawaheer, we are confident he will successfully lead us forward with commitment, passion and enthusiasm.

Mr Walker has a Science and Psychology background and having worked in girls' schools for the last seventeen years, he is a great advocate of single sex education.  Mr Walker will be joining Westfield from Pipers Corner School, which is a small independent all girls school in High Wycombe, where he is currently Deputy Head.

Mr Walker will be attending our annual awards ceremony at the Gosforth Marriott Hotel on Thursday 29th June.
