Wednesday 11 October 2023

In Autumn 2024. Peter Green, the current Executive Headmaster of Rugby School Group, will take up the post of Principal at Gordonstoun. Peter will succeed Lisa Kerr, who will have served as Principal at Gordonstoun for over 7 years, and was previously a Governor at the school, who is moving to become Principal of George Watson’s College in Edinburgh. An experienced school leader, who has previously been at the helm of Ardingly and Rugby School, this will be Peter’s third headship.

David White, Chair of Governors at Gordonstoun, said:

“We are thrilled that Peter Green will join Gordonstoun in Autumn 2024 as our next Principal. Peter is an educational leader of huge experience and reputation and will bring a great deal to the Gordonstoun community.  In Peter, the Governors have found someone who shares our commitment to character education, and to ensuring every child discovers that there is more in them.

The Governors are hugely grateful to Lisa Kerr for all the work she has done to lead Gordonstoun forward and re-establish the school as a global leader, as well as a vital part of the Moray and Scottish educational landscape.  Peter Green is the ideal successor, someone who can build on all that has already been achieved and ensure Gordonstoun thrives towards its centenary.”

Peter Green said:

I am delighted to have been appointed Principal of Gordonstoun to succeed Lisa Kerr. I am looking forward to leading such a distinguished and internationally renowned school, in my home country of Scotland, and to reaffirming, in the modern world, Gordonstoun’s unique approach to education.”
