Jackie Doodson, presently Principal at Llandrillo College, was appointed by the Board in a unanimous decision, following an extensive countrywide search for the best candidate for the role. Mrs Doodson will replace Andrew Tyley, who has stepped down after seven years in the position in order to start his own consultancy business.

Gillian Richards, Chair of Governors at the College, said, “We are delighted with the appointment of Jackie Doodson as the new Principal & Chief Executive of Walford and North Shropshire College. We were extremely fortunate that we had a very strong field of candidates from which to choose, and we are very pleased that Jackie was among them. She will bring her extensive experience and knowledge to the role, and we are looking forward to working with Jackie in the months and years ahead.”

Mrs Doodson has been Principal of Llandrillo College for the last two years, the culmination of four promotions during her time at the college, her posts being: lecturer in Business & Management; Quality Manager; Faculty Director, Business, Computing and Tourism; and Vice Principal, the last for over six years. This has given Mrs Doodson wide-ranging experience from sixth form to land-based provision, all of which will stand her in excellent stead for her new Principalship at WNSC.

Gillian Richards further commented, “The Board is keen to see Walford and North Shropshire College grow its curriculum provision, to offer the local community the best choice for its further and higher education needs. Jackie has a very strong background and will bring all her experience to the role, for the benefit of local people.”
