Moorland Private School appoints new headteacher

Deborah Frost has been promoted to the role of headteacher at Clitheroe-based Moorland Private School.

Moorland was established more than a century ago and provides education for children from three months to 18 years old. The school also offers boarding as well as traditional day school.

Deborah initially joined the school in 2015 and has served as both business manager and assistant head, working alongside previous headteacher Jonathan Harrison.

Deborah said: "I was fortunate to work directly with the previous headteacher, Jonathan, and learn and understand the vision of the school directly from him. When Jonathan decided to step away from the role after 10 years, it felt the natural and logical next step for my career to take the head position.

"I want to utilise the skills from my previous roles and combine them with the knowledge that I have learnt from Jonathan to help lead the school in its next exciting chapter.

"We’re already well known as a Centre of Excellence for both ballet and football but I want to extend that further and really showcase the academic excellence that we deliver at Moorland."
