Appointment of new Deputy Head of Secondary

I am very happy to announce the appointment of Thomas Yung as Deputy Head of Secondary, effective August 1st, 2021.

Thomas brings a wealth of experience to the role, including extensive experience in digital innovation and leadership and management development.

For the past four years he has served as Principal of Københavns Idrætsefterskole and he holds a Master of Management Development from Copenhagen Business School and a Master in Cross Media Communication from University of Copenhagen.

Thomas previously worked in the educational publishing industry, where he held a variety of editorial/e-learning roles at Læ, Clio and the Center for Applied School Research.

He is bilingual in German and Danish and was previously an external examiner of German in both primary school and UCC teacher’s college. In addition to German and Danish, Thomas has full professional proficiency in English and also speaks some French.

Thomas’ key responsibility will be to manage Lower Secondary, and I look forward to working closely with Thomas to advance the priorities for the Secondary department.

Please join me in welcoming Thomas to the school.

Kind regards,

Julie Rørdam Thom

Deputy Director
