Announcement from the Chair of Governors

On behalf of the Board of Governors we wanted to inform you that Mr and Mrs Dunlop have decided that this will be their last year at Clayesmore.  After what will be nearly 5 years as part of our community the time has come for them to pursue new challenges.

Mr and Mrs Dunlop kindly gave us a full year’s notice of their intentions. However, to achieve a smooth transition for the new Head and minimise disruption to pupils, they have agreed to depart at the end of the Easter term to give the new Head an opportunity to settle in before embarking on a new academic year at Clayesmore.

We are incredibly grateful to Mr and Mrs Dunlop for all their care and dedication to Clayesmore during their tenure and we would want to take this opportunity to thank them for their contribution and wish them all the best for their future.

The Governing Body is obviously keen to find a successor for Mr Dunlop and therefore has already begun the process to recruit a new Head of the Prep School. We are confident that we will quickly be able to appoint an outstanding new Head of Prep who will be able to steer the school through the next phase of its journey.

John Andrews, Chair of Governors
