Our people

Clive Pierrepont

Non-Executive Director

Before moving to the Middle East, I was a Headmaster of a UK school designated as a National Centre of Excellence, working with students who had problems in mainstream education. For the last 5 years in the UK, I chaired my local Headteacher’s Association.

After 15 years as Director of The Sultan’s School, Oman, I joined Taaleem in 2008, the second largest operator of premium private schools in the UAE.

I have been a Board Member of British Schools in The Middle East (BSME), Council of British International Schools (COBIS) and founder board member of Outward Bound (OB), Oman and at present, am board member of OB, (UAE).

I am also privileged to be part of a mentoring network that works with ‘High Achievers’ from various industries. When given the chance, I also enjoy commentating and speaking on all matters ‘education’!
