The Banda School is excited to be taking on a new Head from September 2023 – Mr James Moss-Gibbons.

Having grown up in an independent school in the UK, James then read Geography at Oxford University, before going on to teach at three leading prep schools where he held a variety of leadership roles. James and his family moved to Kenya in September 2020, where he took up a Deputy Head role at Kenton College. His wife, Michelle, is also a teacher and he has two daughters, Emma and Sophie.

Whilst being fully committed to his job, James also firmly believes in a healthy work-life balance and in his free time he loves travelling – his family have already relished their adventures in Kenya so far. Sport, especially cricket, is also a particular passion, and he is also equally happy to be engrossed in a good book or a crossword.

James is very much looking forward to meeting all our pupils, parents and teachers in September and is excited about being a part of the Banda community.
