Myddelton College is delighted to announce the appointment of Alun Brown as Deputy Head from September 2023. He joins Myddelton from Rydal Penrhos School, where he is currently Head of Sixth Form.
Alun began his career at The Windsor Boys’ School teaching English Language and Literature across all ages and was soon promoted to Assistant Director of Rowing. He moved to Monmouth School in South Wales and continued to teach English acting as the Principal Scholarship Examiner for Common Entrance. At Monmouth Alun took up the roles of Resident Tutor and latterly as Housemaster of Severn House. In 2008 a new adventure beckoned when he and his wife Charlotte moved to New Zealand to live and work in Whanganui Collegiate School. As Director of Rowing and Housemaster of Selwyn and Harvey Houses respectively, they engaged fully in the life of a busy boarding school.
On return to the UK in 2012 Alun, Charlotte and their son Finlay began a new chapter of their life embracing Island living in Guernsey as Assistant Head of Sixth Form at Elizabeth College. While living in the Channel Islands their second son Sebastien was born just in time for the next move to Cranbrook School in Kent where Alun took up an appointment as Housemaster of Rammell House.
It had long been a desire for the family to return to Wales and in 2018, this opportunity arrived when Alun took up a teaching position at Rydal Penrhos School as Head of English. Through a period of just over 4 years, Alun’s contribution to Rydal Penrhos was significant establishing a new Army Combined Cadet Force and effectively leading the Sixth Form through the challenges of the Covid pandemic.
“I feel very privileged and grateful to be offered this exciting opportunity as Myddelton College’s new Deputy Head. I am absolutely delighted to be joining the Myddelton Family and very much looking forward to working with the whole Myddelton community. I am impressed by the ethos and standards established by the community of the college and hope to inspire future generations of Myddelton students to reach for the stars. It has been my ambition to join a Senior Leadership Team that is open and willing to utilise my broad range of experience and expertise. Myddelton College has enjoyed significant growth and success as one of the youngest independent schools in the country and I look forward to supporting the leadership of this exciting community, helping to develop the future happiness of its students while ensuring that the College continues to grow from strength to strength.”
Alun lives with his wife Charlotte, sons Finlay and Sebastien and their two dogs Blue and Bandit. They have lived in Llanfairfechan for four years loving life between the mountains and the sea.Categories: News
