An award-winning Norwich school has appointed a new headteacher to take over from its outgoing head who is moving to a prestigious school in Singapore.
Christopher Wilson will replace Nicholas Bevington, who has been headmaster at the independent Town Close preparatory school since 2013, in September.
Governors said Mr Wilson, who is moving to Norwich from Lockers Park School in Hemel Hempstead, where he has been headmaster since 2012, brought “a wealth of experience and knowledge of the prep school sector”.
Town Close School was awarded TES Pre Prep/Prep School of the Year 2020.
As part of his appointment Mr Wilson met and was quizzed by pupils on the school council. “I was struck by the polite and well-mannered nature of the children and the ease with which they communicated with me, both in formal and informal situations,” he said.
