A NEW principal has been appointed at Wigan and Leigh College.

Michael Sheehan will join the college with immediate effect from Riverside College in Halton, where he has brought about a rapid turnaround of the establishment.

He was formerly the principal of Pendleton College in Salford where he led the College to an outstanding Ofsted inspection and the award of Beacon status.

He said: “I am excited to be offered the opportunity to lead Wigan and Leigh College and am looking forward to working with students and staff.

“The college is at the heart of the local community and is a key provider of education in the borough.

“With the multi-million pound redevelopment of the campus, coupled with staff who are dedicated to providing a positive learning experience, the college has a bright future.”
