Mr Dan Rogers was appointed Director of Finance and Operations of King Edward’s Witley and Barrow Hills School in April following Mr Andrew Lewis’ departure. Prior to joining King Edward’s, Mr Rogers, his wife Lucy, and their four children lived in Kent; their children have joined King Edward’s and Barrow Hills.
Mr Rogers is a Chartered Accountant with over 15 years’ experience within the education sector. During this time, he has worked in various roles with both independent and state schools, including Financial Advisor for a multi-academy trust, Director of Finance and Operations at a state funded secondary school and, most recently, the Deputy Bursar at The King’s School, Canterbury.
Before joining King Edward’s, Mr Rogers held the post of Chair of Governors at Barton Court Grammar School where he restructured and developed their newly recruited Local Governing Body. Whilst he has now stepped down from this role, he continues to support Barton Court Academy Trust as a Member of the Trust, providing support to the Trust’s Board and its group of schools.
Mr Rogers’s passion for the education sector and the charitable status of Independent schools is what attracted him to the role of Director of Finance and Operations at The Bridewell Foundation. The historic nature of the Foundation and its charitable support of Foundation pupils was a particular draw as he feels very much aligned with this ethos. He said “Now is an exciting time to be at King Edward’s and Barrow Hills as we approach a phase of investment”. Mr Rogers brings with him the energy and enthusiasm to drive this development forward as the next chapter in Bridewell’s long history unfolds.
Mr Rogers and his family enjoy walking in the Surrey Hills and discovering new friends and places. The Rogers’ household continues to be noisy, in no small part due to their love of music!
