Last Monday, the Board of Governors announced that Scott Naismith would take up the post of Principal from September 2007. Since 2003, he’s been head of Regent House School, Newtownards. Between 1992 and 2003, he was deputy head at George Heriot’s independent school in Scotland.
Hopefully Methody can now move on and start a new era - though it’s worth noting that after a long serving headmaster/minister/CEO, it’s quite common for whoever immediately takes over not to stay very long, but for their successor to be more permanent. Scott Naismith may benefit from Cecilia Galloway's less settled period at the school, and find his (inevitable) reforms will receive a warmer welcome.
