New Head Announcement

The Board of Governors, have great pleasure in announcing the appointment of Mr Giles Tollit to the post of Head of Arnold House School with effect from 1st September 2021. Giles is succeeding Viv Thomas, who retires at the end of the Summer Term after fifteen years of exceptional service to the School.

Giles is currently in his tenth year as the Headmaster of Horris Hill, a leading boys boarding prep school in Newbury, Berkshire. Since joining the School in 2011, Giles has been instrumental in developing the School’s reputation for outstanding pastoral care and academic excellence.

On accepting his appointment, Giles has said:

“I am delighted to be moving to Arnold House in September and to be asked to continue the school’s tradition of providing an outstanding education for boys during their most formative years. With the addition of Huxley’s, it is an exciting time for Arnold House and I am very much looking forward to leading the school community, which so warmly supports the boys’ successes.”

The Board have every confidence that Giles will successfully lead Arnold House through the next chapter of its history, ensuring the School’s ethos is retained whilst having a clear vision for its future and building on the strong foundations laid by his predecessors.
