Toby Mullins (BA, MBA) Interim Head
Toby Mullins has been a Head for over twenty-two years with a track record of success in a range of schools, with a high profile in the education sector as Chair of both the Society of Heads and the Independent Schools’ Council.
Mr Mullins was appointed Head at Seaford College in 1997, when the school had fewer than 300 students and a poor reputation in the local market.
In the following 15 years, Seaford embraced full coeducation, increased its roll to 650 (including the creation of a Prep School) and is now one of the most popular schools in the area.
In 2012, Mr Mullins was recruited to join the David Ross Education Trust (DRET) where he became Executive Principal running two maintained academies. In September 2015, Mr Mullins was recruited by the Reddam House group to setup their European flagship school in Wokingham, Berkshire and in 2017 he joined Albion Capital in setting up Mount House School in North London.
In addition to his work with the Society of Heads and the ISC, Mr Mullins has been an examiner at A Level, an ISI Inspector, Chair of Governors in two Prep Schools and is currently Chair of the United Westminster and Greay Coat Foundation and on the Board of Trustees for the Children’s Trust, a national charity for children with acquired brain injury.
Mr Mullins and his wife, Carol, have two grown up boys, who are themselves both teachers. He is a keen sportsman and has been a Level 4 Coach for England Hockey and has coached England International Teams at Junior level.
