A headteacher is stepping down after 13 years at the helm of a secondary school to pursue a career in youth mental health.
Dawn Moore announced she will leave her role as leader of independent King Alfred School in Golders Green at the end of the academic year in July.
She will be replaced by Robert Lobatto, who is currently headteacher of ‘outstanding’ state secondary Barnhill Community High in Hayes.
Ms Moore, who taught at the school for 30 years, hopes to start a second career working in the field of youth mental health on a national scale.
She said: “I have loved my 30 years here. It was always my intention to pursue a second career after my headship and now is the right time to do so.
