College Announcement – Continuing Growth and Success

Boston College has today announced that its Principal and Chief executive, Jo Maher will be leaving the College later this academic year.

Jo joined the College in 2017 and over the last two years, has built the College from strength to strength with her Executive team, leading an investment of over £10 million into the campuses and facilities, providing the highest quality student experience. The College has also been ranked as one of the top 5 Colleges across the whole of the country and received an Outstanding grade in the recent Ofsted inspection.

Jo explains, “It is with a heavy heart I have decided that I will be leaving Boston College. This has not been an easy decision for me, as I have been privileged to serve at Boston College and to work with such a fantastic board and staff team. Boston College has been on a journey over the last few years, and I have no doubt that with the strength of a superb Executive, SLT and staff team, great governance, brilliant quality, and exciting capital plans, that the journey will only continue to move forward.”

Jo will be moving back to Loughborough College as their CEO and Principal, which is where her career in Further Education started. Jo will be working closely over the next few months with the College Governors and Senior Leadership Team to recruit a new Principal and Chief Executive.

Jo added. “The College will continue to have my full commitment during my notice period and I will be talking with pride and warmth about what a brilliant college Boston is in the future. There is a special culture here, that places care for students above everything else and it has been an honour to be part of that – A new Principal will be lucky to work here with such great people.”

The College will now be starting the process of finding a successor who can build on Jo’s work and deliver on the equally ambitious future plans. In the meantime, the board of governors remains committed to the College’s mission to transform people’s lives through delivering excellence in everything they do.
