Mr James Mercer-Kelly - Head Master of The Kingsley School

In contrast to graduating from the University of Oxford with a degree in Chemistry, Mr Mercer-Kelly enjoys the Arts, gardening, and travelling, which has inspired him in recent years to learn Italian. He is a passionate advocate of girls’ education, working at single-sex girls’ schools for the past sixteen years. A highly skilled leader with a rare mix of pastoral and academic experience, he was Assistant Head (Pupil Development) at Headington School, Oxford before taking up the role of Senior Deputy Head at Wycombe Abbey School.  Mr Mercer-Kelly joined the Foundation as Headteacher at The Kingsley School in January 2022.
