Title: New Head at Norfolk Prep School
Date: 14th February 2022
From September 2022, Langley School welcomes a brand new Head of Prep to lead the co-educational independent school at its stunning Taverham Park site.
After 14 successful years of Headship, Mike Crossley retires from Langley Prep but his successor is no stranger to the school. New Head of Prep Jason Hyatt was formerly Deputy Head for three years, before he took up a role at Gresham’s in north Norfolk in 2018. With decades of experience in education, Jason is also an ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate) Reporting Inspector and a Satips (Support and Training in Prep Schools) Council Member.
Jason comments, “I am absolutely delighted to be joining the Langley community as the Head of Langley Prep School. It is great to be returning to a school that I know so well from my time previously as Deputy Head.”
Langley is famed for celebrating intellectual curiosity, confidence, kindness and integrity, and Jason is keen to see these values in action, particularly given that Langley Prep School sits within a 100acre site of ancient woodland and parkland, home to a fantastic Outdoor Learning Centre, all just a stone’s throw from Norwich.
“I am passionate about pupils achieving their best through the many opportunities available to them while having kindness at the heart of everything that they do.”
Jason continues, “The School is extremely lucky to be located in such stunning grounds, giving children the freedom to grow. I believe that education is constantly moving forwards, reflecting the ever-changing needs of the world around us, and it is our job to help prepare our young people for this.”
