The College is delighted to announce that Cyp Vella has been appointed to the role of Assistant Head of Sixth Form, with effect from September. Cyp is the latest addition to the College’s dedicated Sixth Form team, which is led by Ben Collie Head of Sixth Form and comprises Assistant Heads of Sixth Form, Anne Allen and Rod Isaacs, Head of Careers, Jacqui Quinney and Extended Project Qualification Co-ordinator, Helen Pascoe-Williams, supported by the Sixth Form Tutors and two administrators, Becky Underhill and Amanda MacKenzie.

Religious Studies Teacher, Cyp, has worked at Princethorpe for seven years and has most recently held the additional roles of Oxbridge Co-ordinator and Primary School Liaison Teacher for the College.

Headmaster, Ed Hester, comments, “Cyp will bring a wealth of skills and enthusiasm to his new role. He will play an instrumental part in helping our current Year 11s make a smooth transition into Sixth Form and adjust well to the demands of A-levels and life as a young adult.”

Head of Sixth Form, Ben Collie, has overall responsibility for all Sixth Form students, their academic progress and performance. Cyp will work alongside Anne Allen and Rod Isaacs to deliver the day to day pastoral care and enrichment programmes that nurture and develop all Princethorpe Sixth Formers.

In addition, Anne Allen retains responsibility for the varied Sixth Form visiting speaker programme and social events, Cyp Vella will continue as Oxbridge co-ordinator, and Rod Isaacs will continue to oversee the inspirational Sixth Form CORE enrichment programme.

Ed Hester continues, “The Sixth Form represents a very significant time in the development of our students. I’m delighted that we have such an excellent team to guide and support them in all respects as they grow as individuals.”
