As we are settling into the New Year (whether international or lunar!) it seems a good time to bring you up to date on what your Board has been doing to ensure that we will have a new Principal to take over from Giles in July.
When Giles announced his decision not to renew his contract last October, the I.S.P. initiated a series of measures to advertise the vacancy in a targeted manner directed towards a selected group of potential candidates. We also placed an announcement in chosen media to broaden the coverage and seek a benchmark for the pool of contenders. Internal applicants were also encouraged.
By the time the deadline was reached on 31st December last year, we had received over 20 responses and following a series of interviews with qualified candidates, the Trustees have shortlisted two for final selection.
As has become our established practice, we are inviting the finalists for face-to-face meetings with representatives of the various stakeholders, including UPTA, at the school over a period of two days. This is scheduled for Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th February and more details will be announced nearer the time.
With kind regards.
