THE search to find a principal to lead Lowestoft's new sixth form college is under way.

Work to build the £28m centre next to the existing Lowestoft College has not yet started, but a bid to find the right person to be at the head of the project is under way.

The role of principal designate is now being advertised, attracting a salary of £85,000, and calls for a person “who believes passionately in providing excellent learning opportunities for young people.”

The sixth form college, off St Peter's Street, will eventually house about 1,000 students and replace the sixth forms at the town's three high schools.

The centre was granted planning permission earlier this year and is due to welcome its first students in September next year as part of Suffolk County Council's shake-up of education in the town which will see a two-tier school system introduced.

Applications for the role of principal designate are open until later this month, but a position as interim principal, to start in April this year and work for the next sixth months, is also being advertised.
