A MORAY school is set to appoint a new principal teacher next year.
Peter Green will take up the post at Gordonstoun School at the start of next year’s autumn term.
On taking on the role, he said: "I am looking forward to leading such a distinguished and internationally-renowned school, in my home country of Scotland and in the modern world.”
Mr Green will succeed Lisa Kerr who has served as the principal of Gordonstoun for over seven years.
Ms Kerr, the only female principal in the school’s history, led Gordonstoun through the Covid-19 pandemic.
She is leaving to take up the post of principal teacher at Edinburgh’s George Watson’s College.
David White, chair of governors at Gordonstoun, said: “We 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.
“We are thrilled that Peter Green will join Gordonstoun as our next principal. He is an educational leader of huge experience and reputation and will bring a great deal to the school community.”
Mr Green is currently the executive headmaster of Rugby School Group, a group of 18 British public schools.
Gordonstoun will be his third headship, with him previously being at the helm of Rugby and Ardingly College.
