A secondary school has announced today (Wednesday) that a new headteacher will take over from September.
The Knights Templar School in Baldock has revealed that Tim Litchfield will replace current head Andrew Pickering from the start of the next academic year, beginning in September.
Mr Litchfield is currently deputy headteacher at Bishop’s Stortford High School.
He said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as headteacher of Knights Templar in its 75th anniversary year. The school is a wonderful community with a strong ethos and sets high standards and high expectations for staff and students.
“I really enjoyed meeting staff and students over the two days of interviews. I look forward to working closely with staff and parents to ensure that every young person is successful and aspires to be the very best they can be.”
Mr Pickering will leave after eight years in the job.
He said: “I have decided to step down and plan to go into further education. I have loved every minute of my eight years here and have really enjoyed seeing all the children grow up during that time.”
