The Abbot of Worth and the Chairman of Governors of Worth School have announced the appointment of Mr Stuart McPherson as the Head Master of Worth School from September 2015. He succeeds Mr Gino Carminati who is retiring after eight years of outstanding service at the School.

Mr McPherson is currently House Master of Penn House at Eton College and teacher of English. He took his Bachelor's degree at the University of Western Australia before completing an MA in Literature and Religion at Newcastle University. Mr McPherson taught at Sydney Grammar School from 1900-2000 and has been at Eton since 2000. He is married to Johneen, who is the Director of Studies at St Mary's Ascot, and they have four children aged between 14 and 21.

Mr McPherson will be the seventh Head Master of Worth School, and the third lay Head Master in the School's 55-year history.

Worth is a boarding and day Catholic Benedictine School for boys and girls aged 11 - 18. There are nearly 600 students at the School which was founded in 1959 by the monks of Worth Abbey. The School is located in Turners Hill on a ridge of the High Weald, less than 15 minutes from Gatwick Airport and Three Bridges Station.
