King’s Ely has welcomed new members for the new term, including four new additions to positions of leadership.

Sue Freestone, principal of King’s Ely, said: “We are fortunate to have assembled a group of impressive individuals who have gelled exceptionally well with each other and the existing team.

“I sense the combined effect of the King’s Ely synergy is about to move up several gears.”

Jonathan Shaw is the new head of King’s Ely Senior.

Born in Staffordshire, Jonathan is a history graduate of Nottingham University with an MA in leadership from the Institute of Education in London.

He has worked in a number of independent day and boarding schools, both in the UK and in Kenya, and most recently as vice principal of Elizabeth College in Guernsey.

Jonathan has moved to Ely with his wife, Katherine, and two children.

The new head of King’s Ely Acremont is Faye Fenton-Stone. Born in Kent, Faye is a graduate of University College London and the Institute of Education.

Faye, who is married with two children, has come to King’s Ely from the post of deputy head of the pre-prep of King’s College School in Cambridge.

She has both early years foundation stage (EYFS) and key stage one experience.

Ben Pennington has joined the school as deputy head of King’s Ely Senior, moving south from Ampleforth College in York, where he was deputy head of middle school and housemaster of St Dunstan’s.

Born in Worcester, Ben attended Bristol University before completing a PGCE at Oriel College, Oxford. He has taught in Sydney, London and more recently in Sherborne, Dorset.

He served for five years in the British Army with the Irish Guards and has played professional rugby for Leicester and Bristol. Ben has moved to Ely with his wife and two children.

The fourth leadership post has been taken up by Celia Etchegoyen, who joined earlier this year as interim head of King’s Ely Acremont.

Celia has now moved to the newly created post of director of outreach, and will be looking to extend and develop the school’s partnership work.
