CEO | Principal's Report

Haileybury is very pleased to welcome Dr Nicholas Grigsby as the Deputy Principal Head of Senior Schools from the start of Term 2. Dr Grigsby becomes a key member of the Haileybury Senior Executive team who collectively oversee the education delivery and operations across all campuses.

Haileybury’s vision is ‘to be recognised as a great world school’ and our mission is ‘to develop high achieving students who are connected globally, to each other and to the communities in which they live and which they will serve.’

Dr Grigsby’s extensive and varied career well supports Haileybury’s vision and mission. Dr Grigsby’s most recent role was as Senior Deputy Head of Stonyhurst College in Lancashire in the UK. Stonyhurst is a 430-year-old co-educational secondary boarding school of 800 students.

During his five years there he managed the complex academic and pastoral care needs of the students and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. He has previously worked at schools in New Zealand, China and Poland. Haileybury greatly values the breadth of his international experience which will add further depth to our strategic planning.

In a future in which involvement in performing and creative arts will help students develop the broad range of skills needed for post-school life, Dr Grigsby’s music teaching and performance background (he is an accomplished organist) will also be of great value. He has a bachelor’s degree and teaching certificate from the University of Leeds, an MA (Honours) from the University of Waikato in New Zealand and a PhD from the University of Waikato.

  • Derek Scott, CEO | Principal
  • Rebecca Arceri, Chief Operating Officer
