Mr Austen Hindman

Austen Hindman Sept 2021I trained as an English teacher at the Institute of Education in London and began my career in Newham, East London. I have since worked exclusively on the south coast: at Mayfield School in Portsmouth, Hove Park School in Brighton and Hove and then as Head Teacher at Peacehaven Community School. I have held most of the key roles in school leadership at one time or another, including leading Teaching and Learning at Hove Park School and two stints as Business Manager.
I have always attended my local Anglican church, so have experienced the breadth of the Church of England. I presently worship at St Mary’s Church, Pulborough.
