New Deputy Head Appointed

Stuart Bachelor is appointed Deputy Head.

I am delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Stuart Bachelor as Deputy Head with effect from September 2017.  Mr Bachelor, who is a graduate of St John’s College, Oxford is currently the Assistant Principal (Teaching and Learning) at Surbiton High School. 


Mr Bachelor brings with him significant teaching experience, having started his career in 2000 at The City of London School for Girls, before he was mobilised for 10 months to Iraq in 2004 as part of his service to the Territorial Army.  Mr Bachelor returned to teaching in 2005 at Uppingham School where he was engaged with the boarding life of the School as an Assistant Housemaster.  For the past ten years, Mr Bachelor has been at Surbiton High School, initially as Head of RS and Philosophy and since 2012 as Assistant Principal.  He plays cricket whenever he can and really enjoys spending family time with his wife, Charlotte and two young  daughters.


We were fortunate to have significant interest in this position and both long and short-list interviews demonstrated the calibre of the individuals who had applied; however, Mr Bachelor stood out from this field and proved himself to be an exceptional fit for Freemen’s.


As ever,


Roland J Martin
