He will continue with St Stephen’s School, which is WA’s largest independent school with campuses in Carramar and Duncraig, until the end of term 2 next year.
The King’s School is Australia’s oldest independent school and one of only eight schools in the country in the G20 association of secondary schools.
“Just like St Stephen’s School, The King’s School has an outstanding reputation for academic success while focusing on the character development of every student,” he said.
“The community we have built together at St Stephen’s School is vibrant, innovative and inspired and these strengths have been recognised by The King’s School.”
St Stephen’s School council chairman Brian Handley said Mr George was a visionary educator.
“He has been instrumental in developing St Stephen’s School’s pedagogical and pastoral care practices, teacher development, integrated use of technology and reinforced school-based service learning for students,” he said.
“With education in Australia undergoing significant change over the past decade, Tony has also been influential in building the financial management of the school.”
