WHEN you interview Mr King, you always pay attention because you have a terrible fear that he may be asking questions at the end and heaven help you if you don’t know the answer!
Headteacher of Gable Hall and William Edwards, John King will be retiring at the end of the academic year. Both schools know that the new choice of Head will be a vital vital decision.
John King has strode like a educational behemoth over the borough for many years. He has seen off a vast number of Directors of Childrens Services with each one somewhat challenged by John’s intellectual and tactical acumen.
