A new headteacher has taken over at a private school.

Deborah Frost has been appointed as head teacher of Moorland School, Clitheroe, following her previous roles of business manager and assistant head at the school.

Deborah worked closely with the previous headteacher, Jonathan Harrison, who has held the role for a decade, since she first joined the school in 2015.

Deborah said: “I was fortunate to work directly with Jonathan and learn and understand the vision of the school directly from him.

“When Jonathan decided to step away from the role after 10 years, it felt the natural and logical next step for my career to take the head position.

“Moorland is a fantastic school. We have a really close family feel and I am proud to know every child that attends our school.

“I want to utilise the skills from my previous roles and combine them with the knowledge that I have learnt from Jonathan to help lead the school in its next exciting chapter.”

Moorland Private School was established over 100 years ago and provides education for children from three months to 18 years old.

The school also offers boarding as well as traditional day school and boasts smaller, dedicated private education to all its children.
