Moriah Jewish Day School head Alan Shaw will take up the Hasmonean Primary headship in September following the retirement of Jenny Rodin after 21 years in the post.
Mr Shaw has led Jewish schools for more than 20 years, having previously been head at Ilford Jewish Primary. He has also worked as an Ofsted inspector.
Governors’ chair Neil Nachshen said that finding someone “to succeed a head-teacher who has achieved so much in her career has not been easy. We are fortunate that a head-teacher with a track record of success was motivated to embrace the challenge of sustaining the excellent standard.”
Mr Shaw said he had been privileged to steer Moriah “during the first 15 years of its existence, developing it into a consistently top performing Jewish and Harrow school and, as acknowledged this year by the DfE, into one of the top performing schools in the country”.
He looked forward “to bringing my skills and experiences in both Jewish and secular studies to Hasmonean Primary to build on its tremendous reputation and outstanding achievements”.
