One of Cumbria's best known colleges has appointed a new Principal.
George Cooke has taken up the role at Higham Hall, which has been run as an independent educational charity since 2008, specialising in educational courses for adults.
Mr Cooke follows on from Alex Alexandre who helped develop the college into an educational centre, before he retired in December 2012.
The Chair of the Board of Trustees, Gareth Kelly, said:
"Without Alex's vision and leadership, Higham Hall College as a pioneering adult education Charitable Trust would not have happened.
"This is an achievement of which Alex should be immensely proud. He has been the catalyst in creating a whole new and inspiring chapter in Higham Hall's history."
