Colin Baty is Head of Bedales Prep School, Dunhurst. He has returned to Bedales where he started his career in the UK as Housemaster in 1999. Previously he was Deputy Head of Moreton Hall Prep School in Suffolk and Headmaster of Great Walstead Prep School in Sussex.
Colin holds the National Professional Qualification of Headship, Professional Practise in Boarding from the Boarding Schools Association and studied Education at Waikato University NZ. Colin is a passionate advocate for Boarding schools and values the added experience that the wrap around care provides for families in the 21st century.
Boarding is not what we remember from Tom Brown school days. Today it is based around the highest pastoral care, family community and an excellent way of giving children a ‘home from home’ experience with staff who are caring for boarders like they would their own children.
Colin has ‘Prep school boarding’ running through his veins and he and his wife, Debbie are committed to giving the children in their care a childhood to remember.
