TAUNTON Prep School has a new man at the helm from next month – and he’s looking forward to the role with ‘great excitement’.

Zimbabwe-born Duncan Sinclair has been appointed headmaster of the junior school.

He moves from St Michael’s Preparatory School, Kent, where he has been since 2002 – rising to the position of deputy head.

Mr Sinclair said that independent prep school education was facing changing times, especially when considering examinations and transitions to secondary schools.

“At Taunton Prep, my greatest prospect is growing and building on the school’s strong academic, pastoral, sporting and extra-mural provision.”

“As a founder school of the Prep School Baccalaureate (PSB), a new and unique academic provision which seeks to enhance and broaden the experience of the students, Taunton is in a commanding position.

“We are poised to grow from our current position of being praised for excellence to our rightful place of being widely recognised, country-wide, as a highly respected forerunner in co-education.”
