New Deputy Principal
Following our current Deputy Principal’s appointment to Principal Designate, Hills Road Sixth Form College Governors are pleased to announce that the new Deputy Principal will be Dr Nicki Dartnell, with effect from April 2017. The decision to appoint Dr Dartnell, from a strong field of six candidates, was unanimous.
Dr Dartnell joined the College in 2006 and is currently a Curriculum Director, Head of the Extended Curriculum and Chemistry teacher. She is also a Principal Moderator for the OCR Extended Project.
The current Principal, Linda Sinclair (who is retiring at the end of March) said, “Nicki Dartnell is an outstanding colleague and this is a very well-deserved promotion. Following the recent appointment of Jo Trump (Principal Designate), I am delighted that the College has secured a new leadership team of such high calibre. I wish them both every success and happiness in their new roles.”
Dr Dartnell said, “I am delighted to have been appointed to this exciting role. I look forward to working alongside the Principal Designate and other colleagues both internal and external to continue to deliver the high quality student experience that we are known for.”
