Russell Slatford joins from Reading Blue Coat School
A keen athlete, Russell coxed the Cambridge Crew to success in the 1995 University Boat Race before embarking on careers as a Geological Consultant and teacher.
Announcing the appointment, Jon Coles, Chief Executive of United Learning said:
'I am delighted that we have appointed Russell to head BCS. Not only is he a highly experienced leader, he is an excellent match for the aspirations, profile, strengths and growing reputation of the school.'
Mr Slatford said:
'I am greatly looking forward to taking up this post and I am very encouraged by everything I have seen at the School. BCS already has a strong reputation locally, nationally and internationally and I am excited about the prospect of being part of the School's future development. It is also important to me to be joining United Learning, an organisation with an excellent educational track record across both the independent and state sectors.'
Mr Slatford will take up the reins during the summer term.
