Mark Hudson - the former Head of Kew House retains a consultative role as Director of Leadership within our central GSG Leadership Team.  

The GSG is committed to providing independent education of the highest quality that meets each individual child’s needs. The group is comprised of four co-educational schools in London – Ravenscourt Park Preparatory School, Kew Green Preparatory School, Kew House School and Maida Vale School. GSG schools currently educate over 1300 pupils aged 4-18 years. Since 1991, these schools have pursued excellence and innovation while establishing strong family communities at each location.

Since its second year of opening, Kew House School has benefited from having a Parent Advisory Council (PAC). This is comprised of the Headmaster, who acts as the Chair Person, Deputy Head and a range of elected parents from each year group. The Headmaster may second individuals chosen for their experience in business and education as appropriate. The PAC meets once a term to discuss matters relating to the school and to pass on advice to the Headmaster and the GSG proprietors. The Advisory Group have no financial oversight over the school and do not manage the school. They are, however, there to represent and share the parent’s point of view.
