THE new headteacher of Selston Arts and Community College has revealed he is relishing the exciting challenges ahead of him.

Kevin Gaiderman has joined the college after five years as deputy headteacher at a college in Cheltenham where significant improvements were made in student achievement.

The 47-year-old said the opportunity to be part of a new team taking the school forward was an exciting challenge.

“Schools are going through transition with new curriculum announcements anticipated and there are funding issues, but I’m looking forward to the challenge,” he said.

The new headteacher said he was ‘heartened’ by his warm welcome and said ex-headteacher Di Stendall would be a hard act to follow.

“I am extremely heartened by the warm welcome and initial response I have received and I want to build on the excellent foundations laid by Di,” he added.

Mr Gaiderman represented England students at rugby and continues to enjoy golf, swimming and trips to the gym.
