Hope Valley College appoints new Principal

Hope Valley College is pleased to announce the appointment of David Willis as its new Principal starting in September 2015, following the planned retirement of Bernie Hunter at Easter after 13 years of leading the College.

Mr Willis is currently Deputy Head at King Ecgbert School, Dore, Sheffield.  He commented, ‘I am thrilled to be joining Hope Valley College, which has an ethos of inclusive education taught in a friendly atmosphere, which develops leadership and independence in its students but does not sacrifice academic rigour.’

During the summer term, the Acting Principal will be the Deputy Principal, Paul Dearden, which will ensure it is business as usual. 

Mr A J Critchlow
