Appointment of a Principal

Message from David Humphries, Chair of Governors :

I am very pleased to inform you that Lyndsey Kane, currently Vice Principal of The Spires College, Torquay has been appointed as Principal of Bideford College with effect from 1st January 2016.

This appointment reflects the unanimous views of all those involved in the selection process including staff, students, governors and representatives of the Local Authority and Regional Schools Commissioner. The Parent Governors involved in the appointment are confident that Lyndsey Kane has the personal qualities that our earlier survey told us mattered most to parents. This is a very positive development because we all recognise the need for sustained long term leadership of the College that can build on the substantial improvements that have already taken place under Andy Kilpatrick.

After half term there will be an opportunity for parents to meet the new Principal and also the Executive Principal of the proposed Multi-Academy Trust with Launceston College.
