Kantor King Solomon High School headteacher gets job on permanent basis

Interim head Hannele Reece is confirmed in leadership role


Hannele Reece, interim headteacher at Kantor King Solomon High School for most of this year, has been appointed permanently to the post.

She succeeds Matthew Slater, who had been absent for seven months before leaving for unexplained “personal reasons” in May after three years as headteacher.

Ms Reece, who joined KKSHS 19 years ago, as a newly qualified history teacher, rose to become head of humanities, assistant head and deputy head.

Governors said she had expertise in implementing the school’s teaching and learning quality assurance frameworks and had been an approved Ofsted inspector.

Ms Reece said she was proud and delighted to accept the role. “I am very lucky to have a passionate, hardworking and committed staff and a fantastic student body. I look forward to driving Kantor King Solomon forward to ensure that we become the best school we can be and to provide our community with the school and the opportunities it deserves."

Stephanie Sollosi and Richard Burack, who jointly chair the school's governors, said, "We are extremely confident that this appointment will enable us to further accelerate our progress in pupil achievement and attainment."
