Lancing College has announced the appointment of Francesca Milling as the new Head of Lancing Prep Worthing from September.
Mrs Milling is currently Deputy Head and takes over from Heather Beeby who has lead the school since 2014.
Francesca said: "LPW (Lancing Prep Worthing) enables our children to achieve their potential, whilst thoroughly enjoying their days here; I am thrilled to be taking on the leadership of our excellent school and continuing our work together."
Lancing College Head Master Dominic Oliver paid tribute to the work of Heather Beeby: "Over the past nine years, Heather has been a true leader with a relentless focus on what is good for the children.
"LPW pupils are extremely well-taught and often lead the Lancing College scholarship lists but, regardless of their particular strengths, all have been inculcated with a truly strong sense of community, responsibility and ethics.
"These strengths – and a great deal more – were recognised in the outstanding ISI 2022 Inspection report."
The school was inspected in June 2022 and received the highest possible gradings of 'excellent' across all assessment criteria.
Lancing Prep Worthing was acquired by Lancing College at the beginning of January 2014 and is located some six miles from the senior school.
