New BGS Principal announced

John McHenry

It will take a while for some of us old hands to get used to the idea that the head of Boston Grammar School is called the Principal but that is the correct title since the school has became an academy in January 2013.

We recently announced that the school’s first Principal, Paul Marsh was leaving at Easter 2014 and that John McHenry, the deputy, would stand in until someone was permanently appointed to the post.

We understand that it has now been announced that the new Principal will be John McHenry.

John McHenry has has taught History and Geography at the school since 1994. He is also the school liaison for the Old Bostonian Association and curator of the Association’s mini-museum at the school.

We wish John good fortune in his new role, and based on our experience to date I am sure the Association can rely on his support as much as he can rely on ours.
