Catherine Anwar, Chief Executive Officer of the Ninestiles Academy Trust, commented:

“I’m delighted to announce that Martin Sullivan has now been appointed as substantive Principal at The Sixth Form College, Solihull, after a challenging interview process and some stiff competition. Sincere thanks to all who took part in the process and helped with the interviewing and organisation of a very complex day on Wednesday. I congratulate Martin on his appointment; I know that we all look forward to working with him as he leads the College to even greater success.”

Principal Martin Sullivan added:

“I am delighted to have been selected as the new permanent Principal; it is an honour and privilege to lead The Sixth Form College, Solihull. The College is already an excellent place to study and a highly aspirational target for young people in the area, as was demonstrated by the hundreds of prospective students who visited Open Evening last week. I want to build on the strong academic learning culture and success of the College and further develop teaching and learning and student experience to ensure that it is a truly outstanding place for all of our students and staff to work and study.”
