Stratford Prep School under new ownership

Leamington Editorial 17th May, 2023   0

STRATFORD Preparatory School is under new ownership.

After over 30 years of ownership and leadership of the school in Stratford town centre, Principal Catherine Quinn has decided now is the right time to pass on the baton.

And as of this week, Wynford Dore and Gareth Newman, who are also the principal proprietors of Arnold Lodge School in Leamington, have taken over.

Mrs Quinn said: “The future of the Stratford Preparatory is in very capable hands. We have been very careful in choosing a successor who will bring fresh perspectives, innovative ideas, and a deep commitment to our school’s mission. They will continue to nurture an environment where each child can flourish academically, emotionally, and socially.”

David Preston, Headteacher at Arnold Lodge School, continued: “Mrs Quinn has sought to ensure that the next custodian of Stratford Preparatory School continues to champion the values, ethos and commitment to high quality teaching that she has held dear for over three decades as Principal of Stratford Preparatory School. It is a privilege that Mrs Quinn has selected the Proprietors of Arnold Lodge School and we are committed to ensuring that we live up to the trust placed in us by Mrs Quinn.”

He added: “SPS is a wonderful school. Like Arnold Lodge, SPS has small class sizes, a focus on the individual child and high aspirations for the success of each child who steps foot in to the school. It is for this reason that there is a deep synergy between our values and educational beliefs that will allow us to lead SPS in a manner that will enable the children to continue to thrive.”
