Lizzie Alexander to join Gresham’s as Deputy Head Pastoral

We are delighted to announce that we have appointed Mrs Lizzie Alexander to be Deputy Head Pastoral from September 2021. She joins us from Haileybury School in Hertfordshire.


Lizzie was born in the UAE and went on to spend most of her school years in Hertfordshire. After graduating from Nottingham University, she worked in London where she gained experience in graduate and fee-earning recruitment for Macfarlanes Law firm. From there, Lizzie moved to Haileybury as the Registrar in 2003 and then was appointed housemistress of a girls’ boarding house in 2008. She spent 9 very happy years caring for the girls alongside her husband Rob, 2 children and their dog, Samson. For the last 3 years, Lizzie has held the role of Proctor, alongside teaching English.

We look forward to welcoming Lizzie to the Gresham’s community.
