New Junior School Head at AKS Lytham


On 3rd January 2018, Mrs Amanda Ilhan joined AKS Lytham Independent School as the new Head of Juniors. Amanda has previously taught in Bristol and Cheshire, and worked as a deputy head teacher in Manchester, before being appointed as Head of the British International Junior School of Istanbul eight years ago. Alongside running that successful school, Amanda was an active member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) and led accreditation teams in schools around the world for the Council of International Schools (CIS).

Headmaster, Mike Walton, welcomed Amanda to the school, “We are delighted to have been able to appoint such an experienced head teacher to this role. Amanda’s enthusiasm and vision will help us build on the successes our Junior School already enjoys and develop further our global outlook”. Mike himself was previously Principal of a large British international boarding school in Thailand and Chairman of FOBISIA (the Federation of British International Schools in Asia). By developing connections through the Round Square group of schools in 50 different countries, AKS Lytham is already ensuring that all pupils benefit from a truly globally inspired education.

Amanda is looking forward to taking on the leadership of the school and said, “Being part of this forward looking team, focussed on giving pupils the best possible start in life is a privilege. Even after the first week, I can see the potential of the children at the school and look forward to working with the tremendous staff, parents and friends of AKS to help provide the rich and fulfilling education the students all deserve”.

In The Can Six

The countdown to Christmas AKStories style!

A Visit from St. Nicholas

By Clement Clarke Moore

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hope that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds;
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap,
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter’.
