Mr Guy Rands Takes the Reins

A new school year begins with the reassuring regularity of the changing of the seasons; but at the Grange Junior School there is one significant change as Mr Guy Rands embarks on his first academic year as Headmaster.

It is clear that Guy is relishing the challenge of leading the Junior arm of the school, which has come a long way since it was founded in the kitchen of Mrs Helen Perry in 1933, into a new era.

“I am extremely proud to be taking up the position of Headmaster of one of the country’s leading and most successful Junior Schools. Perhaps the thing that I am looking forward to most in the coming year is the opportunity to get to know every single child at the School. The most important thing for me is that the school sustains and develops its ethos – that of a caring, happy and purposeful place in which to learn and flourish,” he said.

He certainly seems to have got his message over to the children in the short period of time that he has been in the post, with Prep 6 pupil Scarlet Peck enthusing: “Mr Rands wants to make the school even happier! He has already encouraged us to be the best we can be.”
