Following the sad and sudden loss of Sue McLeod, Principal of MidKent College, as a result of a brain tumour this summer, the Governing Body has announced its leadership plans.

Current Acting Principal, Simon Cook, will continue in this role until the end of August 2015 and Stephen Grix's contract as part-time Chief Executive and the College's chief accountable officer will be extended to August 2016. It is planned to advertise for a permanent principal at Easter next year.

Chair of Governors, Sheila Potipher, said "We feel that this option will allow the College the space and time to settle after losing Sue and is the best strategy for ensuring our future success. With our highest ever enrolments this September, we are looking forward to a bright positive year ahead for our students and staff."
