New Philip Morant headteacher leads school into new era
When Scott Holder arrived as head teacher at Philip Morant School and College it was something of a hurry.
He began on September 1, the day after he was confirmed in the post.
He said: “It was a lot of long days. Usually there would be a lot of time for anyone coming in and I didn’t have that. But I did have a good team around me, supportive staff and leadership.”
Taking on Philip Morant School was always going to be a tough ask.
Years ago, it was one of the best secondary schools in the country and parents bought houses in its catchment area to gain their children a place there.
