National Trust welcomes new leader in the East

Old Harveian Ben Cowell has taken the reins of the country’s leading conservation charity in the East. Ben, who was most recently in charge of the charity’s policy and external affairs work, has returned to his roots to lead a team of over 500 staff and 5,000 volunteers.

Ben said; “I am delighted to be taking up this role, which is easily the best job in the National Trust! I have loved the people and landscapes of the East of England for as long as I can remember. After leaving The Harvey, I studied as an undergraduate at UEA in Norwich, where I specialised in landscape archaeology at the Centre of East Anglian Studies. I now live just outside Saffron Walden in Essex, with my wife Julie and our two boys, Reuben and Toby.”
“The National Trust looks after wonderful places, wildlife, collections, community spaces and heritage for the benefit of everyone. Here in the East that includes miles of glorious coastline from Blakeney in North Norfolk to Orford Ness on the Suffolk coast, important houses like Blickling, Ickworth and Wimpole, and really special countryside including one of the nation’s most ancient woodlands at Hatfield Forest in Essex.”

For many years Ben was a civil servant at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in London, before joining the National Trust’s external affairs team in 2008. Prior to attending the Harvey, Ben was at All Souls’ Primary school in Cheriton. His parents (father David was a school governor at Harvey) live in Sandgate.

Nico Jackson

OHA member Nico Jackson has hit the headlines after accompanying Pippa Middleton to the holiday island of Mustique. Nico, who joined the Harvey in 1989 from Stella Maris Primary School, is the son of Martyn Jackson, who is one of the famous 59ers group of Old Harveians.

After leaving the Harvey is 1986 with excellent A levels, Nico graduated from university and subsequently became a stockbroker with Deutsche Bank, for whom he currently works. At school, Nico was  also a talented sportsman, who represented the Harvey at football, cricket and tennis.

Our Secretary Phil Harding remembers him well as a member of the squad on the USA Football Tour in 1995, and has been back through the archives to discover some photos of Nico from that trip.

New Harvey Principal

The Old Harveians’ Association is delighted that one of our members, Scott Norman, has been appointed by the School’s Governing Body to be the next Principal (AKA Headmaster) of The Harvey. Scott, who is the first former pupil to take up the School’s top leadership role, will commence his new post on 1st January 2014, when Bill Wright retires.

He joined the School as an 11 year-old in September 1985 and, during his seven years at The Harvey, made his mark as a talented sportsman and musician. As a member of a very talented year group on the sportsfields, Scott excelled as an all-round cricketer whose runs and wickets contributed hugely to Kent cup successes and other triumphs. As a footballer, Scott spent much of his time in goal, occasionally displaying his talents elsewhere. In music, Scott performed in the “Prophets of Pop” band.

After university, Scott rejoined The Harvey as a teacher of History and Politics, quickly earning the respect of pupils and colleagues alike. With the exception of a few months “on loan” to The Marsh Academy, Scott has spent his entire teaching career at the Harvey and, in congratulating him on his appointment, the OHA wish him every success for the future, and look forward to working with him for the benefit of Harveians past, present and future.
