New Principal Appointed for Lakes College
Lakes College is pleased to announce that Chris Nattress, currently Deputy Principal at the College, will take over from Cath Richardson as Principal from 1 September 2013.
Announcing the appointment, Chairman Mark Stanger said,
"We are delighted to have found the college’s next principal after a very rigorous and competitive selection process and look forward to working with Chris to continue local delivery of high quality further and higher education in the coming academic year.
"Until then, we will enjoy the remaining time we have working with our current Principal, Cath Richardson, whose retirement takes effect from the end of August."
Chris moved to Cockermouth with his young family four years ago, when he joined the College as Deputy Principal. A keen sportsman, he has thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities for an outdoor lifestyle that West Cumbria offers and looks forward to continuing his career locally, working with local stakeholders and stepping up to the challenges of his new role.
