Tim Fish founded Earlscliffe in 2012 with his wife Julie Fish.
After undergraduate studies in the USA and England, Tim started his career in international boarding schools in 1990 at St Clare’s, Oxford. At 32, Tim became Headteacher at Buckswood, where he remained for over 12 years, seeing the school grow from 67 students to 420, with a buoyant sixth form.
Tim and Julie established Sussex Summer Schools in 2001, which became a multi-centre provider of residential, junior summer programmes in the south-east for international students from over forty countries.
In 2019, Tim became Managing Director of Dukes Education, responsible for the Colleges. He is often available to Earlscliffe students to offer specific advice for university choices and applications.
