The Board of Trustees is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Matthew Burke as the next Headmaster of St Edward’s Senior & Sixth Form.

Mr Burke is currently Head of International Development and Enterprise at Inspired Learning Group, advising a group of thirteen schools. He is an experienced Headmaster with a demonstrated history of working in the education management industry.

Mr Burke’s appointment is the result of a rigorous selection process, through which it was clear to the Trustees that Matthew has the energy, commitment and vision to lead the School forward and build on its success. We were delighted to welcome Matthew to our Sixth Form Information Evening, which took place on Monday this week and served as a lovely opportunity for us to introduce him to some of our current parents.

Of becoming the next Headmaster of St Edward’s Senior & Sixth Form, Mr Burke said:

“It is a tremendous honour and privilege to be given the opportunity to lead and serve the St Edward’s community, and I am grateful to the Trustees for their faith in me. St Edward’s has a very special and unique atmosphere, which was evident when I visited, and my family and I look forward to playing a full role in the life of the School. I am hugely excited by the prospect of taking St Edward’s into the next stage of its development, building on the foundation of successes achieved by Mrs Clayfield. I very much look forward to getting to know the School, and working with staff, pupils and the whole of the St Edward’s community as we enter an exciting new decade together.”

Mr Burke will be joining St Edward’s from the beginning of the Summer Term 2020 and we look forward to welcoming him to our School.
