Message from the Chair of Governors - Appointment of Headteacher

Dear Parents and Carers

I am pleased to inform you the Governors have appointed Mrs Nicola Caley as permanent Headteacher of our school.  Mrs Caley is currently Headteacher of the Alderman White School in Beeston, Nottinghamshire.  She will take up her duties with us at the start of the summer term.

I wish to put on record my thanks and appreciation to Miss Somes who has done such a fine job as Acting Headteacher.  She will continue to be Acting Head for the rest of this term and return to her role as Deputy Head after Easter.

Dr Paul Davies — Chair of Governors

Expansion Project

Below is an artist’s impression of the new building that will contain Reception, 15 classrooms, and a number of offices which is being built at the front of the school.

You may have already noticed some works have been started, these works are ‘enabling works’ such as re-routing of mains services and the demolition of the old caretaker’s bungalow.

The contractors will start work on the new building at the end of June, with completion being August 2019, and ready for use September 2019 (Academic year 2019-2020).

During this period of time, access into school will be restricted with routes for cars and pedestrians being altered.  For students’ safety and consideration for nearby residents, can parents/carers please refrain from driving onto Earlswood Drive and onto school site.
