As most of you will now be aware, ESF today announced the appointment of James Smith to the position of Principal of Discovery College, replacing me when I leave at the end of this academic year. James has an incredibly strong connection with DC and is in a perfect position to step into my role. I am delighted that the sense of what makes DC such a special place will be in very safe hands, and that James and I are in a perfect position to be able to closely work on the transition between now and the end of June.
I know that everyone joins me in congratulating James on his success. I look forward over the following years to watching DC flourish under James’ leadership.
Mark Beach – Principal
