A new assistant headteacher has been appointed at Cockermouth School.
Richard Cox will take up the role of assistant head and learning support in September.
Mr Cox has qualifications in science and outdoor education and worked at the Calvert Trust at Bassenthwaite for a number of years.
He left Cumbria to work in Hampshire in 1998 and moved to Northampton where he worked as a special educational needs co-ordinator at a secondary school.
For the last eight years he has worked at the Caroline Chisholm comprehensive school, where he established and managed the special provision for Asperger’s and Autism unit and is currently assistant principal there.
Mr Cox said: “I am extremely happy to be offered the position and I am looking forward to be moving back to Cumbria.
Geoff Walker, headteacher, said: “We are delighted that Mr Cox has accepted the appointment.”
The school’s deputy head Rosie Luchini will retire at the end of the summer term and has been replaced by Dr Rob Petrie.
