Mr Larter-Evans is currently Head of Boarding, Housemaster and Head of English and Drama at the Yehudi Menuhin School in Surrey.
The Very Revd David Ison, Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral, said: ‘The Governors and Chapter are delighted to be appointing Simon Larter-Evans from a strong field of candidates. He brings an exceptional range of experience, insights and gifts, which will enable all pupils and staff to thrive and grow and will draw the Cathedral and School yet closer together. The current Head has left a remarkable legacy, and Simon will be able to capitalise on this in
creative ways by furthering the ethos and achievements of the School in partnership with governors, staff and parents. We look forward to welcoming him and Dawn as members of the St Paul's community.’
