Sir William Romney’s headteacher leaves school for ‘personal reasons’

A SECONDARY school headteacher has resigned after six years due to ‘personal reasons’. 

Sir William Romney’s School’s Jon Bell became head in September 2016 and has been described by colleagues as ‘distinguished’. 

A spokesperson for the Tetbury school said in a statement: “Mr Jon Bell has decided to leave Sir William Romney’s School for personal reasons after more than six years of distinguished service. 

“He has led the school through the Covid pandemic and a recent successful Ofsted inspection. 

“We wish him all the very best in the future.” 

Mr Bell was previously deputy headteacher at Brimsham Green School in Yate.

In 2016 he succeeded former SWR headteacher Steven Mackay, who left to become head at Oldfield School in Bath.

In May 2020 Mr Bell took on The Door’s 100K challenge raising money for the Stroud youth charity during lockdown. 

New acting headteacher Rob Skipp said in a statement on the SWR website: “I am proud to be the headteacher of Sir William Romney’s School. 

“I look forward to working closely with students, staff, parents and our local community to continue to provide students with the very best educational standards and inspirational enrichment opportunities.”

In its most recent Ofsted inspection the Tetbury school was ranked ‘good’ in 2016.
