Principal headteacher or headmaster Hi guys, could you tell me the difference between a headteacher, headmaster and a principal? Is it used in different countries or has a slightly difference also?

They're all the same, but a headmaster must be male and a headmistress must be female. Generally in the UK we say head teacher nowadays and principal is more common in American English.
