Edenhurst Prep School appoints Mousley as headteacher
Edenhurst Preparatory School in Newcastle-under-Lyme Staffordshire has appointed Emma Mousley as its new headteacher.
Founded in 1961, Edenhurst is an independent school catering to children aged three months to 11 years. The school supports older pupils during the transition to senior school, including preparing them for entrance examinations at independent and grammar schools across the region.
Mousley has curriculum development and senior leadership experience and was most recently deputy head of pastoral and wellbeing at Repton Al Barsha, Dubai, where she has taught since 2013. Mousley also taught at St John’s Beaumont Preparatory School in Windsor and Yorston Lodge School in Knutsford, Cheshire.
Mousley said: “I’m excited and honoured to be taking over as headteacher and joining the Edenhurst family. As soon as I had visited the school, met the pupils and seen how happy, confident and willing they were I knew that Edenhurst was a place that shares my educational philosophy.
“Edenhurst is a school that educates the whole child, putting their wellbeing and happiness first, which strongly resonates with my own beliefs. It’s a place where children are allowed to enjoy their childhood and leave equipped with the knowledge, skills, attributes – and friendships – that will help them flourish in a rapidly changing world.”
