New principal for Gordonstoun
Gordonstoun School has appointed Peter Green, the current executive headmaster of Rugby School Group, as principal at Gordonstoun from autumn next year, succeeding Lisa Kerr, who is moving to become principal of George Watson’s College in Edinburgh.
Green is an experienced school leader, who was previously at the helm of Ardingly and Rugby School. The appointment will be Green’s third headship.
David White, chair of governors at Gordonstoun, said: “Peter is an educational leader of huge experience and reputation and will bring a great deal to the Gordonstoun community. In Peter, the governors have found someone who shares our commitment to character education, and to ensuring every child discovers that there is more in them.
“The governors are hugely grateful to Lisa Kerr for all the work she has done to lead Gordonstoun forward and re-establish the school as a global leader, as well as a vital part of the Moray and Scottish educational landscape. Peter Green is the ideal successor, someone who can build on all that has already been achieved and ensure Gordonstoun thrives towards its centenary.”
Green said: “I am looking forward to leading such a distinguished and internationally renowned school, in my home country of Scotland, and to reaffirming, in the modern world, Gordonstoun’s unique approach to education.”
