Devizes School Appoints New Principal
The White Horse Federation is delighted to announce that Devizes School has appointed Julian Morgan to be the school’s new principal. Mr Morgan is currently The White Horse Federation’s regional director for Swindon, and has previously been the federation’s secondary director. After a transition period, Mr Morgan will join Devizes School in September.
Replacing Phil Bevan, who will be leaving the school to pursue a headship at Faringdon Community College, Julian Morgan will use his passion and experience to continue the recent progress made at the school.
Upon being appointed principal, Julian Morgan said: “I would like to thank Phil for his hard work and diligence in the role. Devizes School finds itself in a very good position, and I look forward to building upon the progress that has been made under his headship.”
“Being a school principal is the best job in the world and I have missed it. I am very excited to start meeting parents and members of the school community as soon as it is possible.”
Devizes School joined The White Horse Federation multi-academy trust in 2012. The trust is responsible for 32 schools across Swindon, Wiltshire, Gloucester, Oxfordshire, and Berkshire.
Julian Morgan’s appointment at Devizes School will begin in September. Julian will work closely with Phil Bevan to make sure this transition is as smooth as possible.
Once he is in post, Julian will communicate his vision and strategy for improvement at the academy in a statement addressed to staff, parents, and the local press.
Everyone at The White Horse Federation would like to congratulate Julian on his new position. We can’t wait to work with him as we continue to make progress at Devizes School and improve outcomes for its staff and students.
