THE new headmaster of Bryanston prep will host an open day for prospective pupils and their parents.

Simon Ridley, the latest headmaster of Bryanston Prep, will host a open morning for prospective parents and pupils on March 8. 

The event is intended to provide an opportunity for parents and their children to get a true insight into day-to-day life at school and meet the head himself. 

Simon said: "Our commitment is to provide a truly inspirational educational environment for pupils and it’s a pleasure to open our doors to those who could become the next generation of the Bryanston community.

“There is nothing better than experiencing the magic of Bryanston Prep for yourself and children visiting us on the Open Day will have the chance to see various lessons and sports coaching as well as the opportunity to meet our ponies and see the Forest School in action.”

Simon joined Bryanston Prep as deputy head in 2022 previously teaching at Ballard School in New Milton. 

He was appointed head at the end of 2023 and hopes to walk the school into its next phase of development. 

This is his first open morning as headmaster and more information can be found at the school's website.
