As you may be aware, I will be retiring at Christmas and the process of recruiting my successor is underway.
Of the original applicants, 8 were selected to progress to the next stage; an assessment day in Duncanrig. On Monday of this week those 8 candidates were invited into school to take part in the assessment day, which comprised interviews with parents, pupils and existing SLC headteachers, and written tasks. At the conclusion of the Assessment Day, the assessment panel chose 4 candidates to progress to the final round of the process – formal interview at SLC Headquarters next Tuesday (21st Nov).
I will inform you of the outcomes of the interviews and provide the name of the new headteacher thereafter.
