Welcome to Helen Allison School

We welcomed Simon Collins as our school’s new Principal on 1 July 2019. Simon has a strong record of leadership in a number of prestigious schools, including Gravesend Grammar School and the famous BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in London.

He also has experience in developing education provision, helping support the opening of ADA, the National College for Digital Skills, and opening a brand new school in Hayes, Middlesex in conjunction with Global, the media brand behind some of the UK’s biggest radio stations.

Most recently, he was Education Director for Acumen Education, which invests in affordable education in developing countries.

Simon is taking over from Anna Molony, who has been doing great work as Helen Allison School’s Interim Principal. There will be a handover period between Simon’s first day in post, on 1 July, and Anna’s last day in post, on 30 July.

Simon will be adding his personal introduction to the school shortly.
