Meet the Head: Lindsay Redding

Pin

Mrs Lindsay Redding has been Headmistress since September 2009. Educated at St Joan of Arc Convent Grammar School, Rickmansworth and University College London, she was previously Senior Deputy Head at Caterham School in Surrey.

Who/what inspired you to become a teacher?

After completing my degree in Economics and Geography I embarked on a career in Marketing. During this time I travelled frequently on business in Europe and the Far East and never lost my interest in, and enthusiasm for all things geographical. After I had my family a move into teaching provided an opportunity to find a balance of work and life in a field that I love. Little did I know that teaching would become such a passion, and I still teach Geography at all levels, this year to the Upper Sixth, Year 7 and Year 3.

What achievement are you most proud of as Head?

Encouraging every single girl at the school to be the best she can be. I believe strongly in developing confidence in girls and young women and reminding them frequently that they ‘can do’ and should aim high. I believe that there is an important and relevant role for them all in the world, and that as a Head my role is to help them to discover what that is and to value and develop their individual skills and talents.

What does a successful school look like to you?

A school that challenges and encourages every girl to be the very best she can be and achieve beyond her expectations. A school that inspires pupils to try new things, broaden their experience and develop the necessary skills for life.  A school that nutures and cares but that expects every girl to give of her very best in everything she undertakes.   

 

What is the most important quality you want every child to have when they leave your school? And why?

Self-esteem. I want them all to have developed confidence in themselves, to believe that they have the appropriate skills and knowledge to tackle the challenges of the next stage in their education and the working world beyond and also the self-awareness and emotional intelligence to understand their role as a member of the wider community.

Please give 5 words to describe the ethos of your school.

I'll choose a sentence rather than 5 words: 

"Achievement and confidence for all."

Catchment information

This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK. Contact the school directly or visit their website for more information on Admissions Policy and Procedures.
