Ian Peake New Principal at NSC

North Shropshire College (NSC) is pleased to announce the new appointment of Ian Peake as Principal. Having been Principal and Chief Executive of Herefordshire & Ludlow College since 2004, Ian has a wealth of experience within FE and has overseen several successful mergers in both Herefordshire and Shropshire, including the College’s land-based provision at the Holme Lacy Campus, Ludlow College Sixth Form and the Shropshire-based training provider, County Training.
This current merger will secure a sustainable and prosperous future by offering students in both communities a good quality education and a broader range of courses and facilities.

“I am delighted and honoured that the Board of North Shropshire College has asked me to serve as Principal for the months leading up to the merger with Herefordshire & Ludlow College. This is a very exciting development for both partner institutions that will enable us to create a new, diverse and financially stable College to provide the very best education and training to every student.” - Ian Peake

Gillian Richards, Chair of the Board of Governors at NSC was keen to emphasise the key-timing of the appointment and comments, “The Board and I are thrilled to welcome Ian Peake to lead North Shropshire College in the coming months prior to merger. Now is absolutely the right time for Ian to join us and we are both excited and ready for the necessary work that will need to be done to ensure a successful merger which will benefit the communities of Herefordshire and Shropshire. We wish Ian every success in the future.”

Igor Andronov, Chair of the Board of Governors at HLC added, “I am confident that Ian will work quickly and diligently to create a merged college that will truly deliver the opportunity for all our students to excel and succeed.”
