Claire Lambert, Head of School in the 2012/13 academic year, was the third Lambert family member to hold this post at the Royal Hospital School. Her sister, Alice, was Head of School in 2007/8 and brother, Charlie, in 2009/10.
Charlie, Claire and Alice are the children of WO2 Charlie Lambert who is based at HMS Collingwood. He has been instrumental in setting up the Royal Marine Section field day programme including some field gun training which was enjoyed enormously by the pupils involved. Claire was the last of his children to go through the Royal Hospital School.
Claire gave her final address to the School at Speech Day on the 29 June alongside Oliver Gerard-Pearse, joint Head of School, where she claimed “they clearly saved the best ’till last” when referring to being the third Lambert family member as Head of School!
