I am writing to tell you that I will be leaving Watford Grammar School for Boys at the end of the Summer Term to take up a new role with the Department for Education.
I am very excited by the prospect of this next stage in my life, but it will be very hard indeed to leave this wonderful School. I’ve been here as a teacher since 1995 and was lucky enough to become Headmaster in 2000. I have enjoyed working with everyone here and have been inspired every day by the commitment and talents of the students and the staff, past and present.
I’d like to thank you all for the support that you have given both to me and to the school throughout my time here and I can assure you that I am leaving the School in safe hands.
Mark Allchorn will take over from me and become Acting Headmaster until such time as my successor is appointed by the Governors. Needless to say, Mark has the full support of the whole school behind him, and will have an especially able leadership group working with him to ensure continued success for your sons and for the whole school community.
Enjoy the Easter break and please accept my very best wishes to you and to your families.
