Clive Smith-Langridge, who left Trinity School in 1983, has been appointed Headmaster at Northcote Lodge School, an independent preparatory school for boys aged 8-13 in Wandsworth Common, South London. He will be joining Northcote Lodge in January 2019.
Following a successful commercial career, Clive moved into teaching at Cumnor House in 2002, and was appointed Deputy Headmaster at Walhampton School, Lymington in 2009. Clive is currently Headmaster at Packwood Haugh School in Shrewsbury, where he joined as Head in 2012.
The Principals of Northwood Schools, Sir Malcolm and Lady Colquhoun, were delighted to announce the appointment of Clive Smith-Langridge as the fifth Headmaster of Northcote Lodge, where the current Headmaster, Mark Smith, retires in July 2018.
“Of the many highly qualified candidates who applied for the position, Clive impressed us as being quite outstanding both as an educator and as a leader, something that has been amply borne out during his headmastership at Packwood Haugh. Moreover, he is completely in tune with our vision for Northcote Lodge and with what we originally set out to achieve. His personal educational philosophy he summarises as: “the whole child is the whole point”, which to us aptly encapsulates what Northcote Lodge is all about. He is going to be an outstanding headmaster, and we much look forward to working with him.”
We wish Clive all the best in his new role.
