New Headmaster announced

The Chairman of Governors at Scarborough College, Dr John Renshaw, is delighted to announce the appointment of Charles Ellison’s successor as Headmaster of the College: Mr Guy Emmett, presently the Deputy Head of Ackworth School.

Guy gained both his first degree, and masters degree, from the University of Durham and began his career as a Teacher of History and Deputy Boarding Housemaster at Rossall School. He then enjoyed a second posting as a Teacher of History at Millfield School before returning to Rossall as a Housemaster and Head of History. He was appointed as the Deputy Head of Ackworth School in 2014. He is a very keen sportsman and has played both cricket and hockey to a high standard, whilst enjoying the opportunities to coach in many major sports. His wife, Helen, is also a teacher and together they have a two year-old daughter, Georgina, who will soon be arriving into Little Owls Pre-school.

Dr Renshaw commented: “We feel strongly that Guy has all the necessary attributes, skills and experience to continue Charles’ superb work over recent years and that he is the ideal leader to build upon the very strong foundations for excellence that are now in place. There are exciting times ahead for the College and the next chapter of its history will see the school continue to reach new heights, cementing its strong reputation for educational excellence across the UK and overseas.”

Speaking on his appointment, Guy commented: “I am delighted and honoured to be appointed as the next Headmaster of Scarborough College. It is an exceptional school, with an exciting future, and I look forward to building upon the great work of Charles Ellison. My family and I have been inspired by the warmth of the community and by the achievements of the pupils in all the very many areas of College life. We are very much looking forward to the move to Scarborough and being part of the College and wider community.”
