A director of studies (assistant head) at a school in Essex is to become the next headteacher of Spalding Grammar School when Nigel Ryan retires at the end of the school year.
Steven Wilkinson is currently working at Westcliff High School for Boys in Westcliff-on-Sea.
Spalding Grammar School’s chairman of governors, the Rev John Bennett, said: “I am delighted Steven has agreed to be the next headteacher of Spalding Grammar School.
“He is a capable and perceptive person whose gifts will move the school forward and help to ensure the school’s reputation for academic excellence is strengthened, whilst continuing to develop students as well-rounded individuals.”
Mr Bennett spoke to staff at the grammar school this morning to tell them of Mr Wilkinson’s appointment.
