Dr Alan Campbell was appointed eighth Headmaster of Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie) from 1 January 2014 and believes that education should inspire young people to use their knowledge, talents and gifts to enthusiastically lead and serve others in local, national and global communities.

Beyond his role as Headmaster of Churchie, he is a Director on the Board of Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ), the peak state body for the independent schools sector in Queensland and is a Director of College Council of St John’s College, a residential college, within The University of Queensland.

Following the completion of a Diploma in Teaching and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Queensland University of Technology and The University of Queensland respectively, Alan began teaching in independent education with majors in English Literature and Geographical Science. He sought to embrace the ideals of providing a broad, liberal education, based on Christian principles, early in his career.

A deep interest in lifelong learning, human motivation and performance, and teacher and school development, led him to complete postgraduate study in Masters and Doctoral programmes. This work has been complemented, more recently, with programmes in school leadership at Harvard University and theology at St Francis Theological College, Brisbane.

Honorary positions are held on working parties and committees in the Anglican Schools Commission of the Diocese of Brisbane and the Australian College of Educators. He holds memberships in the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IB), the International Boys’ Schools Coalition (IBSC), the Headmasters' Conference (HMC) and the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), the latter of which he is a graduate.

Alan retains a love of literature, music and sport and an enthusiastic involvement in recreational and charity cycling.
