THOMAS Rotherham College has welcomed a new interim principal following the retirement of its long-serving head.

Dr Stephan Jungnitz succeeded at the helm Dr Richard Williams, who had served as principal for 11 years.

Dr Jungnitz, who grew up in South Yorkshire and has most recently been interim principal of Hartlepool Sixth Form College, said: “I’m thoroughly excited to have this opportunity to lead the dedicated team at TRC.  

“The college has a pivotal role in the local area in educating students and has a strong reputation in doing so.  

“It is my experience in, and passion for, the sixth form sector which can drive the college to even greater success.”

Throughout his extensive career, Dr Jungnitz has spent 20 years in senior management roles, playing a leading role in founding the northern group of 16 sixth form colleges (Norvic) and holding a consultancy role of colleges specialist, within the Association of School and College Leaders.
