Gloucester Catholic to Implement New Administrative Structure: John Colman Appointed Head of School; Edward Beckett Is New Principal

Gloucester Catholic Junior Senior High School will implement a Head of School/Principal model of leadership that will present a new approach to administrative authority and responsibility. This new model of leadership is designed to help Gloucester Catholic adapt to the needs of the 21st Century Catholic School.
