Brockenhurst College chiefs have appointed a Vice Principal for Curriculum and Quality following a recruitment process described as ‘highly competitive’.

Simon Lovegrove will start work at the college on September 20th after finishing in his post as Assistant Principal of Brooklands College in Weybridge.

In his new role he will oversee the evolving 10-year strategy at the College and manage initiatives designed to grow student numbers.

Simon said: “Brockenhurst has a very strong reputation for delivering quality provision to all age groups.

“I am excited about joining such a committed group of educators and am also looking forward to helping build upon the already high standards at the College.”

The move to appoint a new Vice Principal comes as part of a restructure of senior posts.

It also comes six months after former RAF Air Commodore, Polly Perkins CBE, took over the job of Principal.

Polly Perkins said: “The recruitment process for the role of Vice Principal for Curriculum and Quality was highly competitive, and I am delighted that so many high-calibre individuals put themselves forward for the post.

“In Simon Lovegrove we have an exceptional educator with a gift for innovation and a commitment to achieving growth and excellence.”
