New Principal at King William's College

Joss Buchanan takes helm for new era

King William's College has appointed a new Principal from within its ranks.

Joss Buchanan, who joined the Castletown school in 1997 and has been acting in the role since March, succeeds Martyn Humphreys.

Mr Humphreys resigned following the death of his wife after a long illness, in October.

A history and politics teacher, Joss Buchanan became Head of History before becoming the College's first Head of Sixth Form, then Academic Deputy.

Before starting a career in education, Mr Buchanan worked as an intelligence analyst at GCHQ in Cheltenham.

He said it was "a huge privilege" to be asked by KWC governors to lead the school, which he described as; "above all, a strong community".
