Mr Rands was chosen to be the new Headmaster of the Junior School by senior colleagues and Governors following a thorough and challenging two-round process which unearthed a number of very high calibre candidates.
Mr Rands is currently serving as academic Deputy Head of The Grange Senior School, a role that has brought him increasingly to experience and understand the daily life and work of the Junior School, particularly in the last couple of years. As a dad of Edward in Prep 3, he has a real appreciation of the breadth and quality of the education provided by the school from a parent's perspective. Guy and his wife Emma hope that their youngest, William, will follow his brother in due course.
"I know Mr Rands as an outstanding and immensely hard working Deputy within my team at the Senior School, and am completely confident that he will become a similarly effective and inspirational leader for the Junior School. His deep understanding - and heartfelt commitment to - the values, standards and strategic vision of The Grange as a whole school will undoubtedly serve to strengthen the links and sense of common purpose between its two sections, building on the excellent work of Steve Bennett and his team over the past nine years," said Mr Chris Jeffery, Headmaster of The Grange School.
