After several months under part-time leadership, Old Buckenham High School has appointed a new headmaster.
In September the school seconded Michael Rose, headmaster at Wayland Community School in Watton, as acting headmaster.
The school had been without a head since the summer term when Graham Hodson took early retirement.
New recruit Peter Whear, 44, was deputy head at Haling Manor in Croydon for six years before spending just three months at Ravens Wood School in Kent.
