Louise Fluker, Chair of Governors said:
“Christina has decided after more than 12 years of service at the College, to step down from her role as our Principal as she wishes to pursue new academic and business opportunities. Over the course of her leadership the College has successively been rated Grade 1 Outstanding and remained in excellent financial health.
Christina will be relinquishing the role of Principal with effect from 1 April 2012 before retiring in October 2012. After April Christina will work on projects on behalf of RACC before she finally retires. We thank Christina for her leadership and wish her well with her plans for the future. We propose to appoint an Acting Principal from the start of April, and more details will be circulated shortly.”
Christina Conroy said:
“I have been a teacher and senior manager in further education for over 27 years in Essex, Hertfordshire and London and it has been a great honour being the Principal of Richmond Adult Community College. Professionally, it has been an amazing experience but the time is right for me to take my retirement and move on and do new things. The college has kindly enabled me to maintain my involvement on two key national projects on e-learning and adult entrepreneurship which I will be pursuing.
I would like to take the opportunity of thanking Governors, staff, students and stakeholders for the excellent support they have given me over the years. I have really enjoyed working for the College and in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and I would like to wish Richmond Adult Community College well for the future as it goes from strength.”
