New Head of Prep for Abbot’s Hill School

Monday 8 November 2021

Abbot’s Hill Prep School is to welcome Miss Katherine Bluck as its new Head from April 2022.

Miss Bluck will succeed Mrs Maria Stephen, who steps down at the end of the Autumn term 2021.  We thank Mrs Stephen for her dedicated service to Abbot’s Hill over the past five years.

Miss Bluck is currently Head of the Junior School at Frensham Heights, a 3-18 independent school in Surrey. She was previously Head of the Lower School at Lambrook Prep near Ascot and Deputy Head of the Junior School at the Stephen Perse Foundation in Cambridge.

After attending Berkhamsted Girls’ School, Miss Bluck studied for an MA in Education Studies and Geography at the University of Cambridge.

Commenting on her appointment, Miss Bluck said “I am incredibly excited to be joining the amazing team at Abbot’s Hill in April. Having spent most of the first 25 years of my life in Berkhamsted, I know both the School and the area well. I am privileged to be given the opportunity to lead the Prep School forwards into its future.”

We are delighted to be welcoming Miss Bluck to the Abbot’s Hill School community. Mrs Claire Worrell, Deputy Head Prep will become Acting Head of Prep from January 2022.
