Change of Headmaster

The Headmaster of Leicester Grammar School and CEO of Leicester Grammar School Trust, Christopher King, is leaving his role within the Trust at the end of this academic school year.

Chris has been Headmaster since 2001 and was instrumental in the School’s £33 million move to the Great Glen site in 2008. He is moving on to become the Chief Executive of the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools (IAPS), taking up his post in September 2018.

Leicester Grammar School Chair of Trustees, Dr Sarah Dauncey commented, “I would like to use this opportunity to say how extraordinary and valued Chris's contribution has been and it is appreciated by the whole of the school community – staff, former staff, parents, present pupils and former pupils alike.”

The process has begun to appoint a replacement and the intention is to be in a position to make an announcement before the end of this academic year. In the event of there being an interim period, current Deputy Head (Academic), James Rich, who has been in post since 2012, has agreed to take the role of Acting Headmaster of Leicester Grammar School and will work closely with the Trust’s senior management team to ensure continued smooth running of the Trust.
