KEDS is happy to announce the appointment of Dr Anthony Royle as the school's new Principal.

Anthony has been a tutor with KEDS since 2015 and became a Senior Tutor and BTh Programme lead in 2023. Over the last year, he has been working closely with Dr Calvin Smith with the view to succeed him at the end of 2023. Now, Anthony has already taken on the new role and is working with the board of trustees, admin staff, and faculty in working towards securing a new validating partner.

Anthony says,

"It is an immense privilege to be the new KEDS Principal. KEDS is an excellent Christian higher education provider, which has lead the way in remote learning for many years. As a former student, I was grateful for the affordability and accessibility of the degree courses at KEDS. As an early career researcher, I am thankful for the opportunities awarded me to mark assignments, tutor students, deliver lectures, and supervise dissertations. It is my intention to develop the research culture and community spirit at KEDS for years to come. I would like to take the opportunity to honour Dr Calvin Smith for building this community and for everything he has done for this school. Dr Smith and his family have worked hard and sacrificed much to make KEDS what it is today. I have very big shoes to fill! But I am looking forward to the challenge and the work ahead."

Please join us in welcoming Anthony as the new KEDS Principal!
