The headmaster of Judd and headteacher of TWGSB have both announced their resignations in the past two weeks.
Mr Masters of Judd is staying until next summer, taking a year off, then returning to (unspecified) work in the Education sector; Mr Harrison of TWGSB is leaving this Christmas, citing health reasons.
What a shame for both schools.
Is the pressure of budget cuts a contributory factor? Or the changed academic assessment regime? Or one national curriculum overhaul too many? A combination of these or none? Does anyone know?
I think you might be reading too much into this apparent coincidence of timing.
