New headteacher for Truro High School for Girls
4:20pm Saturday 14th December 2013 in News
Truro High School for Girls has appointed Dr Glenn Moodie as the new Headmaster, starting from September 2014.
Dr Moodie, 40, who began his teaching career at Clifton College in Bristol, is currently director of studies at Wycombe Abbey School in Buckinghamshire, where he has been since 2009. The Sunday Times chose Wycombe Abbey at its 2010-2011 Independent Secondary School of the Year.
“I am honoured and delighted to be appointed the new head of Truro High School for Girls,” said Dr Moodie.
“I am very much looking forward to moving to beautiful Cornwall with my family and getting to know the pupils, parents and staff of the school.”
Dr Moodie and his wife, Vanessa, are originally from New Zealand. Dr Moodie came to the UK in 1998, having been awarded a scholarship to read for a PhD in Classics at the University of Bristol.
The couple and their six-year-old daughter, Livia, will be moving to Cornwall for the new school year - where Livia will join the school at Prep 2 – and are very excited by the prospect.
“It reminds me a lot of New Zealand,” said Dr Moodie.
“The quality and lifestyle in Cornwall is very attractive for someone from the South Island of New Zealand, and Vanessa and I think it is a great place for Livia to grow up.”
Dr Moodie will be taking over the headship from Mrs Caroline Pascoe, who has been at Truro High School for Girls since 2009.
Mrs Pascoe is leaving the school to start a new appointment at Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls in April 2014. Mrs Marcia Smith, currently Deputy Headmistress will be stepping into the role of intermediate Head until Dr Moodie joins in late summer.
