Mr Adrian Maxey has been appointed Assistant Bursar with operational responsibility for both King Edward’s Witley and Barrow Hills.
Mr Maxey, who was previously Head of Operations at Alton College and prior to that Facilities Manager for Southampton Solent University, has over 20 years’ facilities management/operational services experience within the education sector.
The new role with King Edward’s and Barrow Hills sees Mr Maxey taking responsibility for facilities management and health and safety at the two school sites, leading the teams involved in estates, grounds, facilities, laundry and sewing.
A member of the British Institute of Facilities Management, the Institute of Leadership and Management and former Paratrooper in the British Army, Mr Maxey is eminently qualified for the position, which sees him reporting to Mr Andrew Lewis, Director of Finance and Administration at King Edward’s Witley.
“The position offers a new challenge and an opportunity to build upon the good practice already in place. The aim is to develop a cohesive and customer-focused facilities management department with a ‘one team’ ethos that operates across both sites, consistent with one of the goals of last year’s merger of the two schools,” comments Mr Maxey.
Mr Maxey will live on site at King Edward’s Witley with his wife Katie and young baby daughter, Hannah.
