Deputy Head (Academic) Appointment
Dr David Smith
Sherborne is excited to announce the appointment of Dr David Smith as the new Deputy Head (Academic) as of September 2011.
Following a first degree from the University of Wales and post graduate research at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, David started his teaching career at The Leys School, Cambridge, before moving to Sevenoaks School in Kent where, as Head of History for five years, he led a large team of historians teaching and examining both A Level and the International Baccalaureate. Leading many international history trips David believes strongly in the importance of getting students out into the field to fully explore their subject.
While at Sevenoaks, David completed his doctoral thesis with the University of London on British Politics, and was also a Housemaster for eight years, living with his family at the heart of a boarding community of 60 sixth-form international students. Since 2007 David has been Head of History at Stowe School. He is married to Ann who teaches at the prep school attended by their four children. Away from the demands of school, David and his family enjoy escaping to their house in the Cotswolds and are much looking forward to moving to Sherborne this summer.
