Simon Cane-Hardy (Powell 2000-02) has been appointed the new head of senior school at Gordonstoun from September 2023.

Simon is currently deputy head at Prior Park College in Bath. He was formerly head of boarding at Pangbourne College; and head of lower school and head of history at Shiplake College in Henley-on-Thames. He graduated in history from the University of Wales, Cardiff, and has a PGCE from Sussex University and an MEd in educational leadership. Simon is also a keen cricketer and has often turned out for the OE Cricket Club, and is an experienced rugby coach and referee.

In a statement Gordonstoun said: 'In Simon, we will welcome an accomplished educationalist with a wealth of experience in senior leadership, boarding and academic study. During his visit to Gordonstoun, Simon connected warmly with students and staff, and impressed the panel with his commitment to character education and staff development, as well as his collaborative approach to school improvement.'

Gordonstoun is a co-educational independent school for boarding and day pupils in Moray, Scotland, and is perhaps best known for having educated both HRH Prince Philip and HM King Charles III. 

Simon is pictured here with his wife Helen and three children.
