Ian Sterling


Having spent almost thirty years in education and now in my fifth school, I have experience of the whole age range 3 to 18 years. Teaching roles have been in a variety of subjects as diverse as A Level Design, Nursery PE and Year 3 Form Teacher.  Formal positions I have held in these schools include Head of Department, Director of Studies, Housemaster, Deputy Head and Head.

I observe that no day in education is ever the same and this is what excites me. Since 2003 I have been a School Inspector for ISI, earning the privilege of being to be able to visit, evaluate and support schools of all ages and types.

These last three years at Castle House School have been very rewarding and I am lucky to be able to balance class teaching with the leadership of the school, reaffirming my belief in the foundations of basic mathematical and language skills with the opportunities afforded by our digital curriculum and technology.

Away from work I am blessed with four children who naturally consume much of my spare time, but not quite enough to prevent me from enjoying a game of golf.
