Hills Road Sixth Form College deputy Jo Trump has beaten national competition to be named its new principal.
Ms Trump, who has been deputy since 2009, will take over from current principal Linda Sinclair in April.
Before becoming deputy, Ms Trump was consortium manager for the S7 Consortium of Surrey Sixth Form Colleges and before that, assistant principal at Farnham Sixth Form College.
She said: “I am absolutely delighted to have the privilege of leading Hills Road Sixth Form College through the next phase of its development.
“It is a college of enormous talent, both in its staff and its student body and it has been a pleasure to contribute to this vibrant college community for the past seven years. I look forward to working alongside colleagues and students to sustain and grow the excellence for which Hills Road is rightly known.”
Ms Sinclair added: “I am delighted with this decision. Jo has fulfilled the role of Deputy Principal with great distinction and I look forward to watching the College go from strength to strength under her leadership.”
The college’s open evenings for entry in 2017 will be held on Wednesday (November 9) and Thursday (November 10) between 5pm-9.15pm.
