JCoSS gives acting head the permanent role

By Simon Rocker, December 28, 2012

The Jewish Community Secondary School in East Barnet has appointed acting head teacher Patrick Moriarty as its new head.

A former head of sixth form at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Girls School, he joined JCoSS as deputy head in advance of its opening in September 2010.

Chairman of governors Mike Grabiner said: “Patrick will be an outstanding head teacher and will provide excellent leadership and continuity, with a strong commitment to our ethos.”

Mr Moriarty has been acting head since the autumn after the school’s first head, Jeremy Stowe Lindner, emigrated to Australia.
