He will be leaving to undertake new challenges back in the world of academia; leading projects in the field of wildlife conservation.
Mr Carter said: “This has been a very hard decision but my wife Suzy and I felt it was the right time to move onto a new chapter in our lives. An opportunity arises and you take it so that you don’t say in 10 years’ time, What if? I have loved living and working in the Poole community and seeing generations of young people flourish during my time at the school along with seeing our son and daughter progress through local schools.”
Ken Power, Chairman of Governors, said “As Chairman of Governors I have enjoyed working with Ian over the past four years; he leaves the school in a very strong position and the governing body wish him well in all his future projects.”
