“Redcliffe staff have done invaluable work with our daughter and we cannot thank you enough for the way they have all seen her as an individual and brought out so much in her. You have some exceptional staff and I feel we feel our children have been so lucky for the opportunities they have been given at Redcliffe and how it has equipped them for the next stage of their adventures.”
Senior Leadership Team
Sarah Lemmon BA (Hons) Mont Dip EYPS
Head of Pre Prep
As Head of the Pre-Prep I have overall responsibility for the children from the nursery (Robins) up to and including Year 2 (Bronte). With over 20 years of experience in early education, I am the lead teacher in the nursery and supervise the assessments of children applying to join the reception (Kingfishers) classes. I also teach French in KS1, teaching Year One (Skylarks) and Year 2 (Bronte) children thus ensuring that I spend some time each week in all the pre-prep classes.
Following my initial degree in English and Drama, I was trained in the Montessori method and have completed my post-graduate degree in the Early Years Foundation Stage and been awarded the Early Years Professional Status qualification. Not only do I get to know all the children individually, but I act as a parent liaison for all families in the pre-prep. This is particularly important from a pastoral point of view and especially as they transition from St Luke’s Church to 47 Redcliffe Gardens.
Having seen my own son flourish at Redcliffe and move on to prep and senior school, it is a privilege to play a part in the lives of very young children here, watching them grow and develop by encouraging their individual thirst for knowledge. I hope you will come and see our pre-prep soon.
Vicky Ellis MA BSc (Hons) QTS – Director of Studies
Here at Redcliffe I am responsible for the curriculum and the preparation of the boys’ 8+ examinations.
At Redcliffe we recognise that education is an area of constant change and improvement. It is a privilege to be involved in the development of the school with many exciting projects already underway and planned for the future.
Kate Stevens BA (Hons) ACA – Bursar
Having read Music at university, I diverged into a financial career working in many different sectors. For the past eight years I have enjoyed the multi-faceted environment of the Redcliffe Bursary where I deal not only with finance, but also human resources, safety, property management and everything which is not directly connected with the curriculum.
I love working collaboratively with the team to ‘make things happen’ at Redcliffe and to provide the best possible environment for the children to support their educational needs.
