Nick Russell

Assistant Head: Sixth Form at Epsom College

Nick is ‘Assistant Head: Sixth Form’ at Epsom College. His whole-school role is multi-faceted and involves the monitoring of academic departments, pastoral houses, scholarship provision, pupil motivation and cultural enrichment. Nick has led 3 academic departments – in 2 different disciplines – in 3 separate independent schools; he has also run a boys’ boarding house for 7 years. He is interested in how a school’s overriding culture can either encourage or stifle healthy pupil development. His recently completed NPQSL focused on how the removal of unconscious gender bias across a school community improves both behaviour and academic results.
