We are delighted to announce that we have appointed Darrell Chart-Boyles to be Deputy Head (Academic) at the Senior School from January 2024. He joins us from Colchester Royal Grammar School, a highly selective school in Essex, where he has been Deputy Head since 2018.
Douglas Robb, Headmaster, said, “We very much look forward to welcoming Darrell to the Gresham’s community, he brings with him a breadth and depth of leadership experience, knowledge and skills and will ensure all our pupils benefit from the highest possible standards of teaching and learning.”
Darrell, writes, “Following five fantastic years, I am of course sad to be leaving Colchester Royal Grammar School. The school community has experienced many changes in this time but my colleagues’ work on Safeguarding as well as Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is, rightly, being used as a model for success at both a local and national level. It remains one of the finest schools in the country for good reason and I wish my Senior Leadership Team colleagues, staff and students the very best for the future.”
“As the new Deputy Head (Academic), I am absolutely thrilled to be joining Gresham’s, a school with a phenomenal reputation for its academic, pastoral and co-curricular offering. My husband and I, along with our two sons, are looking forward to joining the Gresham’s family and I cannot wait to get started in what I am sure will be a fantastically rewarding role.”
Tristan Philpott, currently Head of Science, will act as interim Deputy Head (Academic) for the Michaelmas Term.
Congratulations to both Darrell and Tristan on these appointments.
