More news, no ads


The headmaster of Stamford School, Nick Gallop, will be leaving Stamford at the end of this academic year to take up a new post as headmaster of Brighton College International, Bangkok.

Chairman of governors, Nicholas Rudd-Jones, said: “During his time at Stamford, Nick has successfully navigated challenges arguably greater than any of his predecessors in our school’s 500 years of history, by leading his staff and students through the unprecedented events of the past two years. He has made an excellent contribution to Stamford School, and to the Stamford Endowed Schools as a whole, but this is an exciting new chapter for him, and the students, staff and governors of Brighton College International can look forward to welcoming him as headmaster.

"We wish him all the very best as he takes his next steps.”

Principal Will Phelan said: "We are all delighted for Nick that he has secured this exciting and prestigious role. Not only has he proven to be an excellent Headmaster of Stamford School since he joined us in 2016, he is much loved by his students and staff and has always been a very visible presence at every co-curricular match, concert and play.

"He has also been integral in the senior executive team, leading the Stamford Endowed Schools at a time of the utmost challenge. Whilst we are excited for him and the challenge ahead, we shall miss him in Stamford.

"We wish the whole family the very best of luck and all success.”

Arrangements for appointing a successor will be made in due course.

It comes as Stamford Endowed Schools announced last week that governors are looking at scrapping single-sex education.
