A FORMER headteacher of Yarm Prep boys' school has taken up a new post at Teesside Prep school for girls in Eaglescliffe.

Mike Abraham, who, until July last year, had spent ten years as headteacher at Yarm, will take up his post at Teesside Prep School in September next year.

The school in Eaglescliffe - part of Teesside High School - topped the region's exam tables once more this year.

Head Hilary French said: "We are delighted that Mr Abraham will be joining us."
