Headteacher appointment

We are pleased to confirm the appointment of Nicholas Prockter as Headteacher of Kingham Primary School from January 2021. He has sent us this brief video message.

Nicholas Prockter is currently Head of Lower School at the prestigious Harrow International School in Bangkok, Thailand, where he and his staff are responsible for nearly 800 children from nursery through primary school age. He has led the expansion of the lower school with the addition of impressive facilities. The school closely follows the British educational system, processes and standards. Offering an exceptional education to children from 18 months to 18 years, it is the largest of the international schools associated with the renowned Harrow School in London, which was founded in 1572.

Before moving to Thailand with his family in 2014 to take up his current post, Mr Prockter was Executive Headteacher at a large state primary school in South East London for nine years. He transformed Heronsgate Primary School from an underperforming school with falling numbers to be recognised as outstanding in all areas, expanding it over two sites with over 800 children.

Mr Prockter and his wife are looking to relocate back to England to be nearer to relatives and continue the education of their two sons. In accepting this appointment, he has indicated his commitment to making a long-term contribution to our community. We are fortunate that he has chosen to bring his considerable experience and expertise to our wonderful school.
