Mr R. Ahearn
Robert Ahearn was formerly Deputy Headteacher at the highly-esteemed Winston Churchill School in Surrey.
He attended Godalming Grammar School and has an economics degree from Sheffield University and post- graduate qualifications from the Universities of Surrey and London. He speaks French, is a keen runner, cyclist and skier, and has completed six London Marathons for charity.
Archbishop Gregorios, who leads the Greek Orthodox Church in the UK, said: “I am delighted by Mr Ahearn’s appointment to the Headship of St Andrew the Apostle; and pray for every blessing on him, his pupils, staff and governors. The Archdiocese and its clergy will be working very closely with him to build close ties between the Church, school and parents and to make this new school a force for good for the whole local community.”
Mr Ahearn, who is an active member of his local ecumenical church is honoured to lead the very first Greek Orthodox secondary school in the UK and was grateful for the support and blessing he’s already received from the Archbishop. “St Andrew’s is a school with a clear Greek Orthodox Christian ethos in which children of all traditions and backgrounds can benefit from learning and living in accordance with gospel values. I relish the opportunity to establish a brand new school in North London; St Andrew the Apostle will promote academic excellence, social responsibility and a broad range of musical, cultural and sporting achievement."
