Sanders School has appointed a deputy head of an Outstanding school in Newham as its new headteacher.

From a field of 21 candidates, Stuart Brooks was named the new head of the school in Suttons Lane after impressing recruiters with his drive and ambitions for the school.

A Havering resident for the last 15 years, he said: “I have strong educational values and principles based around high expectations, hard work and respect.”

He is currently deputy head at School 21, which was judged Outstanding at its recent Ofsted inspection.

A school spokeswoman said: “He leads on progress and attainment and oversees the day-to-day running of this Reception-to-Year-13 school: a range of experience which will prove valuable as Sanders extends and strengths its links with Havering’s primary schools and sixth-from providers.”

Sanders’ former headteacher, John McEachern, stepped down in September last year. Mr Brooks will take up his position formally from September.
