At the end of last term, I formally announced my decision to retire as Principal of the College with effect from April 2017. It has been a real pleasure and a privilege to be a member of such an incredible learning community for almost 29 years, and a genuine honour to be entrusted with its leadership for the last 8 years.
Hills Road is a very special place; the result of highly committed governors who give generously of their time to offer vital expertise and leadership; wonderfully passionate students who never fail to amaze and inspire me; and one of the most dedicated and talented groups of staff I have ever known. I am very proud of all that we have achieved together. Perhaps it is no wonder, then, that it has taken me three decades to make the decision to leave! I am looking forward now to different opportunities, new challenges and to having more time to spend with family and friends.
The Governors are now in the process of selecting a new Principal for the College further details of which may be found here
