Paddy Moss is currently Headmaster of St Andrew’s Prep School, Turi (IAPS) in the highlands of Kenya, which is the premier, full-boarding, British Curriculum Prep School in the region.
Having just completed his eighth year as Head, he comes with plenty of experience of boarding school life and is a great believer in a broad, fully rounded education – both in and out of the classroom. A Canadian by birth, but brought up in the west of England, Paddy attended the University of London and cut his teeth in day and boarding Prep Schools in the UK.
Paddy’s main subject is Geography and over his many years in teaching he has been involved in sports coaching, outdoor activities and Scouting. Full of energy and highly active, Paddy expects high standards from his pupils, as well as a great sense of fun in all of their school activities. Although widely travelled, Paddy regularly returns to the UK and the family have a house in Bath.
Paddy and his wife, Julie, are committed Christians and will move to Cheltenham along with their three young daughters. As well as being a hugely supportive Head’s wife, Julie teaches Mathematics and PE and has many years of experience in coaching sports teams with great success.
Dean Close and East Africa have enjoyed many close links over the years and Paddy and his family are very much looking forward to stepping into this vital role a bit closer to home.
