Announcement of New Headmaster for Bradfield

Bradfield’s Council has appointed Dr Chris Stevens as Headmaster. Chris is currently Second Master at Marlborough College and he will succeed Simon Henderson in September 2015 when Simon takes up his position as Head Master of Eton College.

Chris Stevens was educated at Tonbridge School and then read Modern and Medieval Languages at Cambridge University, from where he received his MA. He began his teaching career as a College Lecturer while researching for a DPhil in Italian literature at Oxford University. He then established a school in France for Ashdown House, the boarding Prep School in Sussex. He joined Uppingham School in 1997 where he was Master-in-charge of cricket and a Housemaster for 9 years. He has been Second Master at Marlborough since 2011.

Dr Stevens brings with him experience from three fine schools. He is also a keen sportsman, playing cricket, hockey, fives and golf. His wife, Helen, is Associate Professor of English at Corpus Christi, Oxford and they have three young daughters (10, 8 and 4) to keep them on their toes!


We look forward to welcoming Dr Stevens and his family to Bradfield, and Council is confident that he will prove to be an outstanding Headmaster.
