A Jersey-born former Hautlieu pupil has been appointed as the school’s next head teacher. Nick Falle (39), who has been Acting Head since September 2012, will take over from Lesley Toms who retires this summer after 39 years in the teaching profession.
Mr Falle, a graduate of Trinity and All Saints Leeds University and Keele University, first worked at Hautlieu in 1998 as a teacher of psychology and history. He then moved to the UK where he taught at Dane Court Grammar School in Kent and Impington Village College, a comprehensive school in Cambridge. He returned to Hautlieu in September 2005.
Mr Falle said: “It is a particular honour and privilege to be able to work at a school that did so much for me and had an important role in my own life. It is also a privilege to serve with such a vibrant and talented group of students and staff.”
Before moving to Hautlieu, Mr Falle was also a student at St Michael’s, Victoria College Prep and Victoria College.
Robert Perchard, Chair of the Hautlieu Board of Governors, said: “We were able to choose from a strong field and are delighted to be able to offer the job to Mr Falle. He has a strong vision for the school, great conviction and clear commitment to teaching and learning. I look forward to working with him.”
Director of Education Mario Lundy added: “Mr Falle’s appointment is a testament to the leadership ethos that has been developed at Hautlieu and the strong teamwork at the school. I would like to congratulate him on his appointment and wish him every success in the role.”
