Shaftesbury School headteacher Tim Farrer says his decision to leave is unconnected with the Sherborne Area Schools Trust taking on the school.
Tim says that decision presents ‘a huge positive step forward’.
Tim has accepted the headship at a larger school in Bradford-on-Avon. Tim said nothing can prepare a teacher for the sense of responsibility ‘on your shoulders’ when you become a school headteacher.
He shares his experiences of his time at Shaftesbury school.
