A new headteacher has been appointed to Sark's school.
Michael Conyers has been a deputy head in the UK for four years, and will start work in January.
The post became vacant after the last headteacher Christopher Sanderson's contract was not renewed, after accusations of inappropriate behaviour.
His departure divided the island's residents, and led to fears that plans to modernise teaching in Sark would be set back.
But Mr Conyers is said to have experience with the electronic white-board technology seen as crucial to setting up a link with a school in Norfolk, which will allow GCSEs to be taught in the island for the first time.
A replacement for Mr Sanderson's wife has also been hired. Deborah Bowyers will teach Class 1, also from January.
