Rhidian Llewellyn, External Consultant
For school placements and consultancy work outside Keystone's core expertise, Keystone Tutors refers to Rhidian Llewellyn and Llewellyn Education.
In 1986 Rhidian joined the staff of The Dragon School, Oxford and, within two years, became Housemaster of School House responsible for 80 11-13 years olds. During his five years on the staff, he taught scholarship English and edited The Draconian, in those days a termly magazine.
In 1991 he was appointed Headmaster of Papplewick, a post he held for twelve years during which time the school flourished academically and culturally while maintaining its reputation for sporting success. At a time when prep-school boarding declined, Papplewick remained consistently full.
Rhidian left Papplewick in 2003 to establish an educational consultancy for parents, schools and governors. He is a non-executive director of Creative Education Corporation and adviser to Affinity, the leading provider of financial advice to independent schools. He is a governor of three independent schools and chairman of one. He has been an ISI Inspector of Schools since 1995, served on the Boarding Schools Advisory Group from 1998 – 2002, and was appointed Lay Chaplain by The Bishop of Reading in 2002.
