Appointment of New Headteacher

Dover Grammar School for Boys is delighted to name the new headteacher who will take over from Mrs Fiona Chapman in September of this year. Mr Philip Horstrup, currently Deputy Headteacher at Maidstone Grammar School for Girls was selected after a lengthy and rigorous application process and will take over at the helm of DGSB in the new school year. Mr Horstrup arrives at Dover Boys with a wealth of experience in selective education in Kent and Medway after five years as Deputy Headteacher in the county town. Having helped Maidstone Grammar School for Girls achieve Ofsted “Outstanding” status in 2009 – an accolade that it still holds – Mr Horstrup says that he is excited about the future for DGSB. Following his appointment, he commented, “I am honoured to have been chosen to lead Dover Boys’ Grammar School into the next, exciting stage of its existence. The school represents everything that is good about education in our county and I am looking forward immensely to working with such a committed staff and able and enthusiastic students. I consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to lead such a wonderful institution, which is such an important part of the local community.” Chair of Governors, Les Craggs, said how pleased he was with the school’s appointment. Mr Craggs said “The Governing Body is unanimous in its belief that Mr Horstrup is the right person to head up our school over the coming period.” Mr Horstrup joins DGSB at an exciting time in its existence, with extensive building projects on the horizon. He speaks of his desire to cement the school’s position as the first choice school for boys in the Dover area.
