MEET OUR TEAM

A CLEAR VISION, STRATEGY AND DIRECTION


Reddam House Berkshire opened in September 2015 as a through-school, divided into three sections – the Early Learning School, Junior School and Senior School. The key duty of the Governing Board is to ensure that each school, and the through-school as a whole, has a clear vision, strategy and direction. In doing so, the Governors are responsible for creating an ethos of high expectation and for monitoring, evaluating and supporting the leadership and management of each school, together with the relevant policies and procedures.

Clarissa Farr has pursued a varied career in British and International schools, the last eleven as High Mistress of St Paul’s, the leading academic girls’ school in the UK. An English Literature graduate with a master’s degree specialising in the twentieth century novel, Clarissa has taught English and drama across the gamut of state and independent schools in the UK as well as contributing to the development of a new school in Hong Kong.

She took up her first headship aged 37, and in the following ten years moved Queenswood School from the bottom of the academic league tables to the first division. During her subsequent tenure at St Paul’s, the school remained for a decade consistently at the very top of the national rankings.

Concurrently with headship, Clarissa was elected to serve both as Chairman of the Boarding Schools’ Association (2001-2) and President of the Girls’ Schools Association (2005-6). Her non-executive roles include being a governor of The Royal Ballet School, a fellow of Winchester College and a trustee of the Africa Gifted Foundation. In October 2016, Clarissa also joined the board of The British Museum.

A regular thought-leader and commentator in the media on matters of education and public policy, Clarissa’s particular interests lie in leadership development and the education of girls. She is the Founder of Dads4Daughters, an internationally recognised campaign to engage fathers of girls actively in the promotion of workplace equality. Her forthcoming book, to be published by Harper Collins in 2019, has been described as “a personal account of an extraordinary career and a provocative look at the state of the nation’s education system and what needs to change”.
