New Headteacher Appointed


Roger McBrien

Press Release from Moseley School

We are pleased to announce that the Governors of Moseley School interviewed for a new Headteacher to succeed Mr Jansen, who is leaving at the end of the year to lead a group of schools in Yorkshire.

We were very pleased with the response we had to the advertisement and we were able to shortlist from a strong field of candidates. The rigorous selection procedure ran over two days and gave us ample opportunity to assess the strengths of all the candidates. At the end of the process we appointed Mr Roger McBrien, who we believe to be the best person to lead our school forward. Many of you will know Mr McBrien, who has served the school as deputy headteacher for the last six years.

Mr McBrien has many years of experience in a number of schools across Birmingham and beyond. During recent years he has led the development of teaching and learning at the school where we have seen tremendous improvements both in the quality of teaching and the progress of our students. Last summer was particularly encouraging with the schools excellent examination results.

The appointment of Mr McBrien will facilitate a smooth transition for the staff of the school and will ensure the rapid pace of our improvement will continue. I am confident, under Mr McBrien’s leadership, our School can continue to go from strength to strength. Teaching continues to improve, students are making better progress than ever before and the facilities they have for learning are excellent. These are the foundations that will enable us to develop as a good and eventually outstanding school.
