BSix, the sixth form college in Kenninghall Road Hackney, has a new Deputy Principal, Jonathan Stewart. Jonathan is an experienced school leader, having been a Director of Sixth Form and a Deputy Head at George Abbots School in Surrey. Jonathan’s job before joining BSix was an advisor in 14-19 education for Surrey Local Education Authority. Jonathan is well-known for running a Diploma scheme for young people in Surrey.

Ken is a national expert on 14-19 education, Head of Department at the Institute of Education University of London and a member of BSix’s governing body. “I am absolutely delighted to be starting at BSix”, Jonathan says. “I am joining the College at a good time with record-breaking A Level results. I had already heard of the many good things going on at BSix and thought I could contribute to these”.

He is one of a group of outstanding leaders and teachers who are joining us this year. We are flattered that they have chosen to work for us and thrilled that they will be able to open more and more opportunities for our young people”.
