Mr Sadler said: “It is my absolute privilege to be joining Belmont Grosvenor School and I am excited by the opportunity to collectively work with staff, pupils, parents and the governors to celebrate and build on the school’s successes and identity and continue to provide the children with strong foundations to thrive in their ever-changing world."

A keen sportsman, Mr Sadler, 34, has played competitive football and is now a keen runner, having completed six marathons, more than 20 half marathons and dozens of 10km and 5km events.

Harrogate prep school forward to its next chapter.
