The St Stithians College community in Johannesburg is pleased to welcome Dr Tim Nuttall as the new rector. Nuttall started at the college on 1 August 2013 and has already become involved with a number of initiatives.

Nuttall came from Somerset College in the Western Cape, where he was head of the senior school. An Oxford graduate and Rhodes Scholar, his career in education spans 24 years. He was a history lecturer and associate professor at the University of Natal in Pietermaritzburg before becoming senior deputy headmaster at St Andrew’s College in Grahamstown. During 2009 and 2010 he spent time in Kenya and Germany, working on an international schools initiative, and in South Africa with the Historic Schools Restoration Project.

Nuttall has wide-ranging experience in educational leadership and management. He has actively fostered school partnerships across the divides in our society, and looks forward to promoting existing and new initiatives at St Stithians. He believes in the value of holistic education, one which combines classroom activity with culture, sport, outdoor education and community service. This emphasis on holistic education leads to the development of character, confidence, citizenship, multiple intelligence and leadership.

As a lifelong learner, a Christian and with a vision of excellence in education, Nuttall promotes the growth and development of the whole person. He believes strongly in an inclusive educational environment, where individual strengths can be encouraged and nurtured. There is strong synergy between this personal vision and the educational offering of St Stithians.
