Posted: 21st June 2024

We are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Adam Gunn as our new Head of Boarding at Woodbridge School. Adam and his family will be joining the School in January 2025 and we are very much looking forward to welcoming them into our community.

Adam joins us from St. Lawrence College in Kent where he is currently a Boarding Housemaster, Head of Religious Studies and serves as Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.

Before moving into the independent sector, Adam served as part of the Extended Leadership Team in a girls’ grammar school as Assistant Headteacher and has managed departments in both grammar and comprehensive schools. He is a Specialist Leader in Education, has the Boarding Schools Association (BSA) Certificate for international boarders and is currently working towards the BSA Diploma.

Adam attended Loughborough University and gained a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology before completing his PGCE at Canterbury Christchurch University.

He has a passion for Philosophy and other humanities subjects, loves sport, reading, and hiking. Adam will be joined by his wife Loïs, and their two children, Jacob and Samuel.

Loïs is a ceramics and jewellery designer and recent winner of Channel 4’s The Great Pottery Throw Down; she is also a former teacher and has worked in a boarding school for more than ten years.

Adam is looking forward to leading boarding at Woodbridge School with the aim of creating the very best boarding environment for all students. He believes that boarders can achieve exceptional outcomes and that a good school nurtures the whole person, and that boarding should develop character helping young people to flourish and become the best versions of themselves.
