Mrs Tilbrook takes over at the Brandon school following the departure of its former principal Sherry Zand.

The school is operated by International English Schools UK whose parent organisation is based in Sweden.

Mrs Tilbrook, who has been teaching and running schools in the local community for 30 years, said:” I have always had a belief that the way to get students to do their best is to have boundaries. I am also a great believer in praise where it is due.

“The ideas of tough love, high academic expectations and a safe calm environment, where teachers can teach and students can learn, fit so closely with my own.”

The school has a number of unfilled roles in its teaching department and Mrs Tilbrook said she aims to make sure the best staff are appointed.

She said:”All teachers are going to be of the highest quality and give the students education they deserve. I need people who I know are going to do the best job for the students. Competative salaries and the IES group’s access to a recruitment network for international teachers will enable us to achieve this objective.”
