John Hamilton has moved to Yorkshire from Scotland to take up the post of Deputy Head Academic at the school this summer. He was previously the Head of Maths at Dollar Academy, a leading independent co-educational school in Clackmannanshire, Scotland.

“I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to work as part of the team at Harrogate Ladies’ College to help shape the vision and direction for the academic future of the school. Harrogate Ladies’ College is exceptionally well thought of in the independent school sector based on the rigour of its academic teaching and strong pastoral care of its pupils. This is a key role within a diverse and creative senior school leadership team in the school.”
Brought up in Crieff in Perthshire, John studied in Edinburgh before moving into the education field.

This is an exciting role working in the heart of the school to take academic and operational responsibility as part of the overall development of the school and ensure the wellbeing of pupils is at the forefront of all decisions. John will make a great addition to the academic staff of whom I am so very proud.”
