King Edward’s Witley appoints new Head of English

Joseph Allen will join the school in September

A new Head of English has been appointed at King Edward’s Witley. Joseph Allen, a graduate of the University of Lancaster, held the same position at Reading Blue Coat School and St Swithun’s, Winchester, among other appointments in the maintained and independent sector. 

The role at King Edward’s Witley will see Mr Allen assume teaching responsibilities for pupils studying English as part of their GCSE, A-level and IB examinations, across a number of year groups. 

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Allen said: “I’m excited to be joining a school where English teaching already enjoys a position of strength. I can play a pivotal role in driving the department further forward and make a genuine difference.”
