Vice Principal appointed for 2019

All Saints’ College Principal Belinda Provis today announced the appointment of Peter Allen as Vice Principal, commencing in January 2019.  Peter brings to ASC a wealth of local and international experience, having delivered education within the Australian Curriculum, the British Curriculum and the International Baccalaureate.

Currently the Director of Teaching and Learning (K – 12) at Scotch College in Perth – a role he has held since 2014 – Peter was also the Head of HASS and then the Dean of Teaching and Learning at Penrhos College. Prior to that, Peter was Head of Humanities and Commerce at Deira International School in Dubai (2008 – 2011). He has also held roles as the Coordinator of the Gifted and Talented program and the Head of Year 10 at Brentford School for Girls in London, Boarding House Master at Christ Church Grammar School and Middle School teacher at John Curtin College of the Arts.

In addition to completing a Bachelor of Education (History and ICT Studies) and a Bachelor of Arts (double major in History and Politics and Law) at UWA, Peter has completed a scholarship-awarded Master of Education (Leadership) at the University of Queensland. He has also attained Executive Coaching Accreditation through Growth Coaching International and has completed the Australian Institute of Company Directors’ course.

One of the recent projects Peter has enjoyed in his current role at Scotch is to chair the project control group charged with delivering the next phase of that school’s master plan. Peter writes that two years of research has come to fruition with a space “designed to shift the pedagogical approach in the senior school whilst ensuring we also create spaces where the wellbeing of our students remains paramount.”

Peter said he is looking forward to his commencement in the role and plans to hit the ground running:

“I am very pleased to be joining the All Saints’ community. I have a great respect for the College’s commitments to excellence and innovation, and I look forward to positively contributing to that in the new year. My first priority will be to engage with the students, families and staff; in particular to assist those students entering Year 12 in 2019 as we work together to maximise each student’s potential. The College’s retreat program in January will serve as an excellent starting point to meet and begin to support students through their final year of studies at All Saints’.” 

All Saints’ College looks forward to welcoming Peter in the new year, and to the strong and positive contribution he will make to our College and community in the years to come, as Vice Principal.
