Peter Clare-Hunt

Past roles and experience

Peter’s extensive experience of the independent sector spans over forty years, eighteen as Headmaster of two prominent Prep Schools, Cumnor House in Surrey and Northcote Lodge in London. He is, therefore, able to draw on this wealth of knowledge and expertise to provide guidance on senior school selection, application processes, pre-tests, entrance examinations and interview technique for many of the top independent schools in London and prestigious HMC public schools further afield.

With a Master’s Degree in Educational Management and Administration, Peter has served as a governor of a London Prep School. He is also a former member of the Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS) and so is familiar with many Prep Schools in London, the south-east and beyond.

As a consultant, he continues to network and liaise with Heads and registrars to ensure that the senior school matches the ability, talents, personality and character of the individual child.
