New Head Teacher for The Green School for Boys
Simon Carter formerly Deputy Head at Villiers School appointed
Simon Carter has been appointed as Head of School for The Green School for Boys. Mr Carter is currently Deputy Headteacher at Villiers High School in Southall. He has a range of experience having taught in 6 schools previously, including at Acton High and at Twyford.
Jill Coughlan, Chief Executive of Green School Trust said, “His commitment to boys' education and our new school is very evident and we look forward to him taking up post in April 2017, subject to the signing of the funding agreement for the school.”
Earlier this year Mrs Sally Yarrow was appointed as Executive Headteacher of The Green School Trust, effective from 1st September 2017, as agreed by the Department for Education. Mrs Yarrow will continue in the role of Headteacher of The Green School for Girls until the end of August 2017, while devoting some time during the preceding months to the preparations for the opening of The Green School for Boys. As Executive Headteacher from 1 September 2017, she will ensure that the ethos and quality of The Green School for Girls is maintained and enhanced as well as overseeing the successful development of The Green School for Boys.
The school, which is to be opened under the Free School Programme admitting pupils in Year 7 from September 2017, aims to replicate the education already offered at the Green School for Girls, which produces high academic standards and is based on Christian values, inclusion, mutual care and respect for others.
The Green School for Boys – a 11-18 comprehensive – will welcome boys who are Christians as well as boys of other faiths and no faith. It would share the values of The Green School – which was judged outstanding in its last Ofsted – and would work hard to develop a distinctive approach to meet the particular needs of boys.
