King’s Ely leadership team in major shake-up

'We are fortunate to have assembled a group of impressive individuals who have gelled exceptionally well,' said the school's Principal, Sue Freestone

King’s Ely has welcomed several new members of staff, including four new additions to positions of leadership. 

Jonathan Shaw is the new Head of King’s Ely Senior. He has worked in a number of independent day and boarding schools, both in the UK and in Kenya, and most recently as Vice Principal of Elizabeth College in Guernsey. The new Head of King’s Ely Acremont is Faye Fenton-Stone, who has come to King’s Ely from the post of Deputy Head of the pre-prep of King’s College School in Cambridge.

Ben Pennington has joined the school as Deputy Head of King’s Ely Senior, moving south from Ampleforth College in York, where he was Deputy Head of Middle School and Housemaster of St Dunstan’s. Also, Celia Etchegoyen, who joined the King’s Ely family earlier this year, has moved to the new post of Director of Outreach. She will be looking to extend and develop the school’s partnership work.

Principal of King’s Ely Sue Freestone said: “We are fortunate to have assembled a group of impressive individuals who have gelled exceptionally well.”
