Vice principals offer help in developing the Telford HLC A modern school needs a modern leadership style. Dr Gill Eatough, Principal at the HLC, a brand new extended community school in Telford, firmly believes in extended leadership for schools. No longer should one headteacher carry the burden. She has built a system with vice principals and assistant vice principals, each with specific respsonsibilities for running the school.
