Isle Of Wight’s Christ The King Names Interim Leadership Team


Matthew Quinn, Headteacher at Oaklands Catholic School and Sixth Form College in Waterlooville is the new Interim Executive Principal of Christ The King College in Carisbrooke.

The school says he will bring “a wealth of knowledge and expertise”, following the resignation of former Principal Pat Goodhead.

Ryan Williams, currently Vice Principal, has today (Monday) assumed the post of Head of School and will be responsible for the day to day running of the College.

Liz Burden, Chair of Governors said,

“We are very fortunate to have two high calibre leaders in Mr Quinn and Mr Williams. Mr Quinn is an outstanding Headteacher with a proven track record over a long period of time in a faith based school. His expertise will be invaluable. Mr Williams has excellent relationships with staff, students and the parent community and will provide continuity so that the strong educational foundations that exist can be carefully built upon.”

“I would like to thank both the Anglican and Catholic Dioceses and the Local Authority in working with us to put these arrangements in place. I would also like to place on record my gratitude to the governing body at Oaklands Catholic School for enabling this arrangement to be put in place.”
