Head of Education

Today's been a bit of a blur. I was interviewed for the permanent position of Head of Education for East Lothian. After a nervous wait I was offered the position this afternoon. I've accepted. I'm looking forward to continuing our work to help develop education in East Lothian. However, the euphoria is counterbalanced by a recognition that I won't be going back to Dunbar Grammar. I've written letters of explanantion and thanks to go out to pupils, parents and members of staff. I loved my time at the school and it is my hope that we can try to recreate something of the culture which characterised the school across the whole authority. Thanks.
