Appointment of New Deputy Head

Appointment of New Deputy Head

 

We are delighted to announce that Mrs Clare Smith has been appointed as Deputy Head of Wellington School from August 2017.  She will replace Mr David Stovell, who retires after ten years of exceptional service.

 

Mrs Smith is originally from Linlithgow, West Lothian. She graduated from Glasgow University in 2001 with MA Joint Honours in History & Politics and subsequently gained a Post Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) with distinction from Glasgow University in 2002.

 

Currently Head of Year for S2 at Hutchesons’ Grammar School in Glasgow, she also has significant whole-school responsibilities and previously held the post of Acting Head of Modern Studies. While she will be sad to leave, she is very much looking forward to bringing her significant academic and pastoral experience to contribute to the future of Wellington.

 

Mrs Smith is married with two young children.  She and her family are looking forward to a move to Ayrshire and being fully involved at Wellington in 2017.
