A principal has announced he will be moving to take up a leadership role at another school in Tottenham.

Nick Soar will become the new executive principal for Harris Academy in Tottenham from September 1, taking over from Lisa Kattenhorn.

Mr Soar has come from the Harris Academy in South Norwood where he held a similar position.

Under his leadership from 2016, the school was granted a national award for inclusion.

Mr Soar joined Harris in South Northwood after serving as executive principal at the Bishop Challoner Federation of Schools in Tower Hamlets.

Mr Soar said: “My vision has always been to balance a drive for the highest academic standards with an inclusive approach for children of all backgrounds.

“I look to the superb teachers and support staff here at Tottenham to help provide a school offering a second chance for all children.

“I will build on the outstanding work of Ms Kattenhorn in partnership with the Head of Academy.”
