The governors of Terrington Hall Prep School, York are pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen Mulryne as headmaster from January 2015. He will take up the appointment on Jon Glen’s retirement from the post at Christmas after more than 17 years’ distinguished service.
Chair of the Governors Rodger Hobson said:
Mr Glen will be a hard act to follow. Terrington Hall has thrived under his guidance and vision, developing a rich educational programme and expanding in numbers and facilities whilst always preserving its unique family feel and close community spirit.
The governors are supremely confident that the school will continue to flourish under Mr Mulryne who has already proved himself an exceptional deputy head at Terrington Hall for the past two years. Amongst a strong field of applicants he was our first choice and we are delighted that he has accepted.
Mr Mulryne said:
I am incredibly excited to be offered the position of headmaster and to have the opportunity to repay the governors’ faith in me. I trust that I will do Jon’s legacy justice.
I am passionate about Terrington Hall. As one of only two truly independent prep schools in the area, it prepares pupils for entry to senior schools across the United Kingdom, with a quarter of our Year 8 leavers regularly achieving scholarships nationwide.
Mr Mulryne (36) joined Terrington Hall School in September 2011 from Terra Nova School, Cheshire where he was Head of Boarding. A former pupil at St Peter’s (1991-6), his father Trevor Mulryne was a longstanding headmaster of St Olave’s (1990-2006). He lives in Terrington with his wife and two young children.
