Old Buckenham Hall School has announced the appointment of James Large as their new Head from September 2023.
James is currently Principal Deputy Head at Norwich Lower School and has been at the school for over 12 years.
He grew up in Suffolk before reading Zoology at the University of Southampton and completed his teacher training at the University of East Anglia.
James said: "OBH is a school I have long held in high regard.
"My recent visits have only served to confirm that its reputation as one of the country's premier prep schools, is very well-deserved."
He continued: "Alongside my passion for the biological world, I love sport in all its forms having represented Great Britain as a sailor from a young age and, more recently, represented England in Touch Rugby.
"I also have a deep appreciation for the Creative Arts."
Over the coming months, James will be working closely with current Head David Griffiths and staff to ensure a smooth transition.
James concluded: "OBH already delivers an outstanding education for its families, and my family and I are very much looking forward to joining the special community that has made this possible."
