Glyn School’s Headteacher, Jon Chaloner, has announced he is to
step down from his post in August 2015.
Mr Chaloner’s nine years in charge of the Ewell-based school have seen a
sharp rise in the school’s academic standards, culminating in two
outstanding Ofsted Reports, in 2009 and again in 2012.
Since 2012 Mr Chaloner has also served as Chief Executive Officer of the
rapidly expanding GLF Schools group – of which Glyn is the founding member -
and it is the growth of this role and its demands that have brought about
“This was an extremely difficult decision but it is one that has to be made
now that Glyn is one of 12 schools within GLF,” said Mr Chaloner. “Being at
Glyn has been an enjoyable and successful part of my professional life, and
I am delighted with the school’s success over the years. Glyn is now a
Leading Edge School, a National Support School and a National Teaching
School – these accolades confirm the work that staff at Glyn share with
colleagues in other schools”
“My role at GLF means that I will still have a connection to Glyn, but it
also provides me with an opportunity to try and help lead similar
improvements at our other member schools.“
The Chair of Glyn’s governors, Paul Carpenter, paid tribute to Mr Chaloner’s
‘exceptional’ contribution to the school’s development over the last nine
years, and reassured parents that Glyn would continue to flourish.
“Mr Chaloner’s contribution to Glyn School is remarkable,” said Mr
Carpenter. “Under his charge, standards have been raised, facilities have
improved, teaching is better and more opportunities are available to
“The governors have a structure in place to find his successor, and we have
advertised the position. We will ensure that we have a new Headteacher
installed for September to write the next chapter of the Glyn School story.”
