Mr Moaby is currently headteacher at Whitehill Primary School

Gravesend Grammar School has announced the replacement of long-serving headteacher Geoff Wybar.

Malcolm Moaby, current headteacher at Whitehill Primary School, will take over running the boys’ grammar from September 2018.

Last month, Mr Wybar announced he would be retiring from his role as head at the end of the academic year, after 18 years leading the school.

Mr Moaby has previous experience with the school as head of Key Stage 3 and as associate head.

Gravesend Grammar School Academies Trust, which runs both Gravesend Grammar School and Whitehill Primary School, is currently searching for his replacement.

Speaking after the appointment, Mr Moaby said: “I am thrilled to be appointed by the GGSAT as the next Headteacher of Gravesend Grammar School. I follow a succession of very successful leaders at the school and I am determined to carry on the tradition of excellence in education at this high performing school.”

Announcing his retirement, due at the end of August 2018, Mr Wybar said: “I have really enjoyed my time here and have had great pleasure from working with so many talented students and outstanding colleagues over nearly 18 years.

“I believe it takes boundless energy to lead a school like this where so much is achieved, so many challenges are met, and it is for this reason alone that I feel the time is right for a younger person to take up the reins and steer Gravesend Grammar School through the next phase of its development.

“It has been a great experience working with families and generations of young people in Gravesham and one that I shall greatly miss.”

Mr Wybar will be keeping a presence at the school in a part-time capacity as executive head of GGSAT.

Chair of the trust, Graham Ralph, said “ I am very pleased that Mr Moaby has been appointed to be headteacher at Gravesend Grammar School. I know he is deeply passionate about education and this school and that GGS is in excellent hands.”
