The Director of Outreach and Partnership

The Director of Outreach and Partnership is Tom Arbuthnott. He was a King’s Scholar at Eton, before graduating from Exeter College, Oxford, where he read Modern Languages. After leading a research programme for a foreign policy think tank, he taught at Kings College for the Arts and Technology (Guildford), Park Hall School (Solihull) and George Dixon International School (Birmingham). Moving to King Edward’s School, Birmingham in 2010, he set up a major outreach programme linking to over 200 state-maintained schools, winning the TES Best Independent-State School Partnership award in 2015. He started work at Eton in September 2016.

The Director of Outreach and Partnership oversees Eton’s educational partnerships, especially with state-maintained schools. In particular, the links with Holyport College, the London Academy of Excellence, and the local partnership of schools in Windsor, Slough and Heston are very important to the College.
