New head appointed for King's Sixth Form

The King's School, Gloucester has announced the appointment of Dr Tom Horler-Underwood as their new head of Sixth Form.

The appointment comes at an exciting time in the history of the school, with King's is currently investing £2.5m in the re-development of its Sixth Form Centre.

Dr Horler-Underwood, who teaches history and politics, was previously the head of Sixth Form at Warminster School in Wiltshire.

He said: "What stood out to me most was the warmth and strength of the community here, which is something I feel very excited and proud to be part of. The School treats each student as an individual; developing their curiosity, engagement, determination and independence. As head of Sixth Form, I am looking forward to providing the support and the guidance to our students to enable them to fulfil their goals and ambitions."

The existing Sixth Form Centre, dating back to the thirteenth century, is packed with historic features and has been home to generations of King's students. The re-development will be completed later this year and provide pupils with a creative work and social space, fit for 21st Century learning.
