Adam Heath commenced as the fifth Headmaster in January 2016 after moving from New Zealand with his wife Kylie and their children, Tess, Tilly and Lachie. Following his secondary education at Geelong Grammar, Adam pursued qualifications in Outdoor Education at Latrobe University, and more recently has completed a Master’s degree in School Leadership at the University of Melbourne.
After early teaching experiences at Mallacoota and the United Kingdom, Adam joined Caulfield Grammar School at Yarra Junction, where he became Head of Campus. In 2005, he was appointed as the founding Head of Middle School at Scotch Oakburn College in Launceston, where he presided over the development of innovative learning programs and facilities, which have since achieved national recognition. This resonates with Ballarat Grammar’s most recent strategic directions, clearly focused on advanced learning practice.
Adam’s leadership has continued to inspire excellence in research-based educational practice at Kristin School, Auckland, New Zealand, where he began in 2009 until 2015.
He has clear interests in internationalism, service to community, leadership and environmental literacy, reflecting Ballarat Grammar’s Round Square involvement.
