Shrewsbury International School Bangkok (Riverside) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Rob Millar, current Vice Principal and Head of the Senior School, to succeed our current Principal, Mr Chris Seal, in September 2022.
Congratulations to Chris Seal, who has been appointed as Head of Tanglin Trust School in Singapore and will move there in August 2022, after five years of exceptional leadership of Shrewsbury International School Riverside.
Mr Seal will continue as the Principal of Riverside for the next academic year, ably leading the school into its expansion phase with the new world-class facilities coming on stream. August 2021 will see the opening of the School’s new 1.1bn THB Innovation Building and Sports Performance complex.
Rob Millar has been a vital part of the school’s leadership team since arriving in Bangkok in 2010, contributing to Shrewsbury’s deserved reputation as Thailand’s leading international school, both at Riverside and City Campus.
Rob Millar graduated with a first-class pass in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University, then a Masters in Neuroscience and a Teaching Diploma at Oxford University. This was followed by teaching in the United Kingdom at various schools before arriving at Shrewsbury Bangkok.
Our school is well positioned to embrace the future. During the next year of leadership transition, we are well placed to enhance the qualities of a Shrewsbury education, inspire exceptional people, and provide outstanding opportunities amongst our students and staff.
On the appointment of Mr Millar as his successor, Chris Seal comments;
“I’ve had the privilege of working closely with Rob Millar for four years now, and his commitment to this school and its values is matched by his inspirational energy and vision for its continued success. The care and innovation he brings to the curriculum, the way it is delivered, the calibre of staff he employs, and the physical fabric of this wonderful campus are all testament to this. He is a proven leader and is hugely respected within the Shrewsbury community and beyond”.
