Brentwood School has appointed a new Deputy Head (Co-Curricular and Staff Development) to further strengthen the experienced senior management team at the 457-year-old independent Essex School.

Making today's announcement, Headmaster Ian Davies said he was pleased to announce that Governors had appointed Mr Jonathan Cohen who will join Brentwood as a Deputy Head in June 2015.

Mr Cohen is currently Director of Professional Development and a member of the Senior Management Team at Haileybury College, Hertford. He read Economics at the University of Bath and holds a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. He is currently studying for a Doctorate in Education.

Mr Davies said: 'I am delighted by this appointment. There was a strong field of high quality candidates for this post and we are fortunate to be able to appoint such an able and experienced person.'

Mr Cohen will take over from Mr Nigel Carr who is relinquishing his role as Deputy Head in 2015 after 35 years at the School. Mr Carr, a teacher of Economics and former Contingent Commander of the School's Combined Cadet Force, is a well-known figure on the campus. He will continue to teach part-time.

Chairman of School Governors, Mr Colin Finch, said Mr Cohen's appointment would greatly enrich the School's Senior Management Team. He added: 'His skills as a teacher and Director of Professional Development, will help to inspire the School to achieve even greater success in the future.'

Brentwood is well known for its academic excellence, outstanding pupil achievements and excellent facilities but places great importance of the professional development of its staff. Mr Davies added: 'We place great value on our teachers they are our greatest resource.'

The School's co-curricular programme is rich and varied with an extensive timetable of Music, Drama and Sport. The Combined Cadet Force is the largest and one of the oldest optional CCFs in the country; The Community Service Unit is the centre of the School's social enterprise and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme is very popular with students.
