Tim HaynesWe are delighted to welcome Tim Haynes as the new Director of Senior Schools and member of the board for Alpha Plus Group.

Tim joined us in October this year and brings a wealth of experience to Alpha Plus Group. He recently retired from the Headship of Tonbridge School in Kent, after 13 years of service. During this time, he oversaw £40m of development, including a new Library, Science and Sports facilities. He helped to raise the academic standing (often 30-40 Oxbridge places each year and 90%+ A*, A and B grades at A level) and made many improvements to the systems of pastoral care.

Prior to being Head of Tonbridge Tim was Headmaster of Monmouth School for 10 years.

Tim has spent many years teaching in London. He started his teaching career at Hampton School before moving to St Paul’s School in Barnes, where he taught History for 13 years and was promoted to be the Surmaster (Deputy Head). He is an Old Boy of Shrewsbury School and is now the Chair of Governors there. Shrewsbury has opened three schools in Asia, to date, and we are delighted that Tim will be assisting us with our own projects in China.

He has been a governor of several schools including Academies and senior and junior independent schools. He is a member of the Skinners Company and the Haberdashers’ Education Committee. I think it will be clear from this that Tim will be a great asset to the team at Head office.
