Who goes where

7th April 2000 at 01:00
Steven Andrews is to be Leicester's next director of education. Last year Mr Andrews became deputy director of education of the London borough of Greenwich. He was responsible for school improvement and the inspection and advisory services. Before that he was senior education adviser in the standards and effectiveness unit of the Department for Education and Employment. He worked on failing schools, education action zones and the Fresh Start initiative.

SENIOR posts in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, are to be filled for six months by Diane Billups from North Lincolnshire and

Barbara Komisey from Salford. Harry Blower, the chief education officer, and Tom McCormack, the chief adviser, have taken early retirement in the wake of a highly critical inspection report. David Mallen, retired chief education officer for East Sussex, will act as adviser on a part-time contract.

Peter Thomas is to be the next head of Maiden Erlegh comprehensive in Wokingham. The current head, Wilton Wills, will retire in July after 17 years in charge of the 1,500-pupil school. Dr Thomas is currently head of Tanbridge House school, a 1,200-pupil, 11-16 comprehensive in Horsham, West Sussex.
