The Board of Governors of Belmont School in Surrey has announced the appointment of Marc Broughton as their next Head.

He is currently Deputy Head at Dunottar School in Reigate and will start in the role on 1st August 2023, upon the retirement of Helen Skrine who has served as Head since 2006.

Marc Broughton said: "It is a privilege to be appointed as Head of Belmont School; the school looks after the whole student and is somewhere that pupils are able to be themselves, learn and improve.

"What was also clear, from the moment that I stepped onto the school grounds was that all those who have responsibility for looking after the students care greatly about them, which for me is an essential aspect of education."

He continued: "Schools should be all about engagement, enjoyment and success and Belmont can offer these in abundance.

"I am looking forward to getting to know the school and everyone associated with Belmont over the next few months."

Andrew Baker, Chair of Governors at Belmont School added: "Throughout the recruitment process, Marc impressed the assessment panel with his enthusiasm, his vision for the continued development of the school, his intelligence in posing questions back to us and his exceptional people skills.

"Marc stood head and shoulders above the other candidates in convincing us that he understands how to deliver Achievement Through Happiness for all pupils.

"Along with the other Governors, I very much look forward to welcoming Marc and his family into our very special Belmont community and taking Belmont School from strength to strength."
