I am pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Ben Jeacocke B.Ed., M.Ed. (Education Management), MACEL, as the tenth Principal of Camberwell Grammar School, effective from the beginning of 2025. Mr Jeacocke emerged as the standout candidate, conscious of and committed to our community and values. He is excited to lead our School into the future.

Ben has been Deputy Head and Head of Senior School at Camberwell Grammar School since 2022 and has worked closely with students, parents, and staff members during that time. He was also Acting Headmaster for a term last year when Paul was on Sabbatical leave.

Before joining Camberwell, Ben worked at St Michael’s Grammar School for ten years, where he held a number of roles, including Director of Years 10-12. He has also held leadership roles at several other schools, including Overnewton Anglican Community College.

Throughout his career, Ben has demonstrated sound leadership skills, genuine care for all his students, and a collaborative approach to working with teachers, staff, parents, and the wider community. He understands the culture, rich history, and community of our School and is committed to developing each of them. We are confident that his leadership will contribute significantly to the continued growth and development of our School.

He and his partner, Efthamia, have two children, Alec, and Evie, and they too are excited about this new stage in their relationship with our School.
Ben is very much looking forward to the prospect of stepping into the role of Principal at the beginning of next year. He will continue to work closely with Paul for the rest of this year to ensure a smooth transition.

Please join me in congratulating Ben and his family on his appointment.

Mr Gavin Powell
Chair of Camberwell Grammar School Council
