Mr Bromwich, 35, is to become Headmaster of St Margaret’s Preparatory School, Calne in September following the retirement of Karen Cordon after 22 years. St Margaret’s is the sister school of St Mary’s, Calne and offers a co-educational experience for both boys and girls aged 3 -11.

Mr Bromwich, who is currently Deputy Headteacher of Kellett School, the British International School in Hong Kong, was chosen to lead the school after a rigorous selection process carried out by the Governors. Chairman of Governors Svante Adde said: “He was our unanimous choice and stood out as the leading contender in a very strong field of candidates, both from this country and abroad.”

“This reflects the high reputation that both St Margaret’s and St Mary’s hold in the independent school world internationally as well as at home. We are confident that Luke will prove a very worthy successor to Karen and that he will steer the school with great success through the years ahead. “

Mr Bromwich brings with him extensive experience of leading successful schools both in the independent and state sectors, in the UK and internationally. He looks forward to joining the St Margaret’s community and is eager to ensure that all aspects of the school, from its academic success to the pupils’ provision in the arts and performance, languages and sport, continue to thrive.

Mr Bromwich grew up in Devon and studied Engineering at Exeter University before pursuing his passion in education which eventually led him to Hong Kong where he has been living for the last six years. His wife Frankie is also a teacher with experience of working in both the private and public sector, more recently specialising in working with children with special educational needs. They have a two year old son, Noah, and the family looks forward to moving to Wiltshire this summer.
