Executive Management Team

The Management of Redhill School is structured in such a way as to make certain that the ethos of the school is upheld throughout all phases of learning. This includes reviewing the strategy to align with changes within the school as well as changes to the broader education system in South Africa.

Redhill Management comprises an Executive Committee and a Board of Trustees.


The Redhill School Executive Committee

The Executive Committee is responsible for overall management of the School in all its key areas of operation with a focus on policy development, planning and direction.


The members of the Executive Committee are:

  • Executive Head – Joseph Gerassi

  • Head of High School – Dimitra Adramitoglou

  • Head of Preparatory School – Heather Kissack

  • Head of Pre-Preparatory School – Sue Pilkington-Williams

  • Head of Academic Strategy – Joseph Gerassi

  • Campus Deputy Academic Administration – Zain Strydom

  • Head of Operations – Galete Kirsch

  • Head of Finance – Jacques Groenewald


The Redhill School Trust

Redhill School is “owned” by a Trust which consists mainly of parents. The Redhill School Trust is responsible for overall governance of the School, setting strategic direction, reviewing plans and budgets and related performance monitoring.

It is also the role of the Trust to appoint and review the Executive Head and in line with policy to delegate responsibility for operation and administration of the School to the Executive Head. It does not interfere with the day-to-day running of the School. Accordingly, the Executive Head reports to the Council on all educational and administration matters.
