A new headteacher has taken over at an award-winning independent school promising a return to normality after 18 months which were disrupted by the pandemic.

Christopher Wilson has joined Town Close School, in Norwich, replacing former headmaster Nicholas Bevington who left after six years to take up a post in Singapore.

Mr Wilson, formerly head at Lockers Park School in Hemel Hempstead, was appointed after impressing governors with his “forward-thinking attitude and modern outlook”.

His two daughters, Amelia and Florence, have also joined the school as pupils.

He said: “As we continue to navigate a difficult period in education, I hope that we can all imbue a sense of normality into school life and seek to give our children an exciting and fulfilling year of learning and growth, inside and outside of the classroom."
