Antony Hudson, Headmaster of the Junior School, elected as Chair of CISC
Mr Antony Hudson – the Headmaster of the Junior School – has been elected as Chair of CISC, the Conference of Catholic Independent Schools in the UK. He has served on the Committee since 2014, undertaking the roles of Treasurer and Vice – Chair, and is delighted to be entrusted with the responsibilities of Chair for the next few years working alongside the General Secretary – Dr Maureen Glackin. He takes over from Ms Antonia Beary – Headmistress of Mayfield School, Sussex – who has been in post for the last four years.
He said: “It is a great honour and privilege to be appointed to this role in tandem with my responsibilities as Headmaster of the Junior School.There are significant challenges within the Catholic independent schools sector, and I very much hope that I will be able to draw on the experiences I have gained during the past 17 years or so of Headship to help my fellow Heads embrace the spirit of change whilst being true to their founding mission and ethos”.
Dr Glackin said: “I am thrilled to be working with Antony as the new Chair of CISC, building upon the excellent stewardship of Antonia.His insights and experience will be invaluable and a huge support to me as CISC continues and renews in serving headteachers and celebrating their contributions to Catholic education”.
CISC was founded in 1990 and is, therefore, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. It has 139 members and meets for its annual conference each January in a different part of the UK. More details about its work can be found on its website: www.catholicindependentschools.com
