Staff List

Horris Hill is one of the country’s leading prep schools: our teaching staff has to be of the highest quality.

Our boarders and day boys benefit from a common room that consists of subject-specialist teachers who also offer their expertise on the games field, their pastoral care as a tutor and their enthusiasms during activity time. 

Most staff, along with their families and dogs, are accommodated on the estate, creating a true community.
