Bob Allonby, a senior class teacher at St Bartholomew's parish CE aided primary school, Great Harwood, is the new president of the Lancashire division of the National Union of Teachers. Mr Allonby has been a member of the NUT since 1974 and he is currently the secretary of the Hyndburn and Ribble Valley association of the union.

ANDREW Trotman, head of St Peter's, York, one of the oldest schools in the country, is leaving to become the warden of St Edward's School, Oxford, in September 2004. He will remain at St Peter's until then.

Mr Trotman moved to St Peter's in 1995 from Edinburgh Academy where he was deputy rector. Interviews to find his successor will take place in the summer term.

The announcement of his departure coincides with the decision by his deputy, Campbell Perry, to leave to pursue a change of career. After six years at St Peter's, Mr Perry is to train to be a psychotherapist.

His replacement will be Simon Marriott, at present a boarding housemaster and director of music at Sutton Valence school in Kent. Mr Marriott holds the National Professional Qualification for Headteachers and is a qualified inspector of boarding schools.
