Former Guernsey head teacher Andrew Warren has agreed to serve as a non-voting member of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture.
Mr Warren, who was previously head teacher at Forest, Le Houguette and Blanchelande College, is a well-known and respected educationalist. He will support the Committee as it introduces the new structure of secondary and post-16 education recently agreed by the States of Guernsey.
His appointment follows that of Professor Richard Conder, former States Member and Chief Executive of the GTA University Centre, who was confirmed last month as having joined the Committee as a non-voting member.
Deputy Matt Fallaize, President of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, said:
‘I am delighted that Andrew has agreed to serve as a non-voting member of the Committee. Andrew has vast experience of education. In Guernsey he was a teacher and head teacher in the primary sector and most recently led one of the grant-maintained colleges. In England he taught in secondary schools with sixth forms; schools around the size our new secondary schools will be. In addition to his success as a school leader, Andrew also spent a little over 18 months as an Assistant Director at the Education Office.
