New Head

Mr Ed Venables started with us as Head of Eagle House in September 2023.


'I am so sincere in saying that I recognise the huge importance of this role, especially at this time, and I am very excited to apply myself wholeheartedly to serve every member of the very special Eagle House community.'

Ed was Director of Admissions at Wellington College and is well-known to the Eagle House Community as both a parent for the past 13 years and also as husband to Kate who works at the school. Ed read Classics at Oxford before initially pursuing a career in finance. In 2008, his true vocation – to work with young people – saw him arrive in Crowthorne where he quickly became a Head of Department and then a highly successful Housemaster of the Stanley House. For the past five years, he has been immersed in the prep school world in his current role whilst also, at various times, serving as a Trustee at Carwarden House School in Camberley and sitting on the Board of Governors at Daneshill Prep School in Hampshire. 

'Kate and I have loved being parents of Eagle House children and have been so grateful for the wonderful education and huge opportunities that they have been afforded over these years. We are so appreciative of everything that the staff have done for our family. Similarly, working at Wellington in my various guises (a teacher of Business and Economics, a Head of that Department, Housemaster of my old boarding house and finally, as Director of Admissions and a member of the Executive Leadership team) has been the most wonderful learning experience. Bringing these two worlds together and using my knowledge and experience of both will, I really hope, provide me with an almost unique opportunity to help every child at Eagle House to achieve their absolute best.'
