New Harvey Principal

The Old Harveians’ Association is delighted that one of our members, Scott Norman, has been appointed by the School’s Governing Body to be the next Principal (AKA Headmaster) of The Harvey. Scott, who is the first former pupil to take up the School’s top leadership role, will commence his new post on 1st January 2014, when Bill Wright retires.

He joined the School as an 11 year-old in September 1985 and, during his seven years at The Harvey, made his mark as a talented sportsman and musician. As a member of a very talented year group on the sportsfields, Scott excelled as an all-round cricketer whose runs and wickets contributed hugely to Kent cup successes and other triumphs. As a footballer, Scott spent much of his time in goal, occasionally displaying his talents elsewhere. In music, Scott performed in the “Prophets of Pop” band.

After university, Scott rejoined The Harvey as a teacher of History and Politics, quickly earning the respect of pupils and colleagues alike. With the exception of a few months “on loan” to The Marsh Academy, Scott has spent his entire teaching career at the Harvey and, in congratulating him on his appointment, the OHA wish him every success for the future, and look forward to working with him for the benefit of Harveians past, present and future.
