New head appointed at Saltus

Deryn Lavell has been appointed the new Head of School at Saltus Grammar School.

Ms Lavell, who will start in the summer of 2017 subject to immigration approval, has been the Head of The Bishop Strachan School, in Toronto, since 2009.

Her previous roles at BSS include Vice Principal of International Programmes, Assistant Head, Institutional Advancement and Principal of Junior School.

She said in a press release: “Needless to say I am just thrilled to be joining Saltus Grammar School and beginning life in beautiful Bermuda.

“It will be an exciting adventure for my husband Steve and I and we are looking forward to getting to know the community and to becoming part of the SGS family.

“The history, the stories and the ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation that distinguish SGS are remarkable and my goal is to continue leading in that tradition and working with you to chart a fresh path for the next phase of the journey.”

Gil Tucker, the chairman of the Board of Trustees, said that Ms Lavell would work closely with current Head of School Ted Staunton, who was brought back to Saltus while the search for a permanent head took place.

He added: “We look forward to introducing Deryn and Steve to our community in the fall when she will be here for a visit. Deryn and Ted will also work closely together to plan a successful head transition, and I am sure we will see Deryn at Saltus on key occasions throughout the next year.”
