I am very pleased to announce that after interview on Thursday 22nd September, I was appointed the new Rector for Banchory Academy.

This is a huge honour and one that I am delighted about.  I would like to thank pupils, staff and the local community for all their support since I started here in April 2015 and I very much look forward to leading what is a very successful school.
