New headteacher from September 2023

TEH Dear parents and carers

The Governors of MCS Brackley have chosen Mr Tom Hollis, our current Deputy Head Academic, to build on the strong legacy of Ian Colling by becoming Headteacher from September 2023.

Mr Hollis was chosen from a strong field following a robust interview process in which candidates were tested and questioned on their educational philosophy and all the key strategic and operational aspects of school life. Before joining MCS Brackley, he gained a wide range of experience in excellent schools in Oxfordshire which has also helped prepare him for this next challenge.

The Governors are excited to work with Mr Hollis and our wider community in continuing to move the school forward. The handover process is already in train, and the entire leadership team will begin work on the next phase of the development of the school.

On his appointment, Mr Hollis said: “I’m delighted to take on this opportunity to continue working with the fantastic students, staff and parents of Magdalen College School. At the heart of our school is the importance of education for all and care for each other. We know that our work here sets young people up for productive and happy lives. It’s a real privilege to help them create memories that will inspire, enthuse and sustain them."

Yours sincerely
Dr Jane Powell
Chair of governors on behalf of the whole governing body
