Originating from the Swansea Valley, Gareth gained personal experience of an independent school when educated at Llandovery College.
Following an initial degree in Human Resource Management, he completed his PGCE in Primary Education at Aberystwyth University and a Masters in Educational Leadership and School Improvement at Cambridge University.
Throughout his career, he has worked in independent prep schools across the home counties. Now in his second Headship, he has been a Headmaster since 2008. Gareth is a trained ISI team and compliance inspector and an active member of IAPS, currently as District Representative for North London and a member of both the Board and Membership Committee. He is also a trustee of the IAPS charity, iTrust and a Governor of a Secondary Academy in Buckinghamshire where his daughters attend.
He is married to Lisa and has three daughters and a Sproodle called Humphrey, all of whom keep him busy.
Gareth loves watching and playing sport, enjoying rugby, football, cricket and golf when time permits. As an ardent follower of Swansea City, the Ospreys and Welsh rugby, he appreciates that life has its ups and downs.
