Francis William Lockwood was appointed Headmaster of William Ellis School in 1945 at the age of 36. During the war he had been headteacher at Gainsborough Grammar School. He was a graduate of St Catherine's College, Cambridge, and had previously taught Classics at Wilson's Grammar School in London. Dynamic and of a strong mind about the direction the post-war school should take, his first priority was the re-unification of the school in its current Highgate Road site after the fragmentation caused by the Second World War.
