HEAD teachers at two north Norfolk high schools have announced that they will be quitting their posts this year.
Paul Mitchell is retiring at the end of the summer term after almost six years in charge at Aylsham. And Don Cameron will leave Broadland, where he has been head for 11 years, in August.
Governors at both schools will advertise for successors to take over when the new academic year begins in September.
Both men have overseen improvements in GCSE results and major building projects at their schools in recent years.

Mr Mitchell returned to teaching to take up the Aylsham headship after a mid-career switch which had included roles as a schools science inspector in Cambridgeshire and principal adviser responsible for Norfolk's secondary schools.
In a letter to parents this week, Mr Cameron said it had been a very difficult decision: “weighing increasing family pressures against my sense of duty to the school”, but he felt the time was right for a new head.
