The Primary Principal of a leading international school in Dubai has been appointed the next Headmaster of North Yorkshire independent prep school Belmont Grosvenor.

Father-of-three Nathan Sadler will take up his position at co-educational Belmont Grosvenor School, based at Swarcliffe Hall in Birstwith, just a few miles from the centre of Harrogate, in September 2022 from GEMS Wellington Academy Silicon Oasis in Dubai, where he is a founding member and helped open more than a decade ago.

Mr Sadler has lived in Dubai since 2011, having initially been appointed as Year Leader and Maths Co-ordinator for all primary years at GEMS before moving into senior leadership where he has progressed through the school’s leadership team from Assistant Principal to Vice Principal before being appointed Primary Principal in 2020.

Originally from Norfolk, Mr Sadler is excited about joining Belmont Grosvenor School and building on its successes and taking the Harrogate prep school forward to its next chapter.

“It is my absolute privilege to be joining Belmont Grosvenor School as Headmaster starting next academic year and I am excited by the opportunity to collectively work with staff, pupils, parents and the governors to celebrate and build on the school’s successes and identity and continue to provide the children with strong foundations to thrive in their ever-changing world,” said Mr Sadler.

“I’m very impressed with the school grounds and emphasis placed on outdoor learning opportunities and look forward to embracing the whole school community and collectively creating life-long memories for the children,” added Mr Sadler.
