A NEW headteacher has been appointed to a Pinner school.
Chris Livesey, deputy headteacher at Nower Hill High School, George V Avenue, will take over the role from George Freed, who has been in charge for more than 14 years.
Mr Livesey said: “We have a wonderful school, nothing short of being one of the most successful and oversubscribed schools in the whole of London.
“I feel very honoured to have the governors entrust me with its headship and to be taking over from Howard Freed, with whom I have worked so closely over the years and for whom I have the greatest respect.
“I am completely committed to that and will work tirelessly with my colleagues to make sure that the continuous improvement of the last 10 years is followed by a further decade of success.”
Mr Freed will retire from his position as a headteacher after 22 years.
He said: “I am thrilled to be handing over to Chris Livesey who, without a doubt, is the right person to lead Nower Hill High School to even greater success in the years ahead.”
Mr Livesey begin his new role in September 2013.
