Jonathan Warner has taken up the headship of the British School Algiers.
Mr Warner has spent the last four years as principal of the British School of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, but has now moved to the international school in the Algerian capital.
On leaving Ulaanbaatar, Mr Warner said he was “immensely proud” to announce it had been awarded membership of the Council of International Schools (CIS).
He wrote on LinkedIn: “It’s a great point to leave on for us, so here’s to new chapters and the next adventure.”
Writing on the website of the British School of Algiers, Mr Warner said that the school is “unique” in the country, offering the English National Curriculum with “additional elements such as the study of the national languages and history and culture of Algeria”.
“We wish to stand proud as a beacon of educational excellence in Algeria”, he added.
Mr Warner is a highly experienced international school leader and before his Mongolian stint was principal of the Hay Al Sharooq International School in Oman.
He has also completed stints at schools in Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Kazakhstan.
He started his career in England, first at a state school in Essex then at King Edward’s Witley and Frensham Heights.
