Rosemary Leeke joined the secondary school in 2003 and has announced she will be leaving in August - following the end of this academic year - to retire.

In her years as the headteacher, Ms Leeke oversaw the huge development and refurbishment project at the school, which cost £26m worth of funding over four years.

The result was a ‘state-of-the-art learning environment’ for pupils and a new ‘identity’, as the school rid itself of its old name, South Camden Community School

Following the redevelopment, the school’s 2012 Ofsted report rated it as good, an improvement from its previous rating of satisfactory, and commended the school on its ‘rapidly’ improving exam results.

The school is advertising for a replacement.
