"Students behave well throughout the school. Their attitudes to learning are good. The right systems are in place to raise achievement in the school. Consequently, this is an improving school."

A Letter from the Head Teacher

Dear Parent,

I am writing to remind you of my retirement this summer. Thank you for all your support over the years both as Deputy and Head Teacher. Without that support the pupils would not have achieved as well as they have done. I have taught for over 37 years and although in some ways I am deeply sad to go I feel this is the right time to hand over to someone else.

I am delighted to announce the new Head Teacher as Mr Christopher Hammill. Mr Hamill is currently Deputy Head at St. Marys Catholic College, an outstanding School in Newcastle. He has worked in three diocesan schools in a variety of roles as Head of Department, Assistant and Deputy Headteacher.

Initially Mr Hammill will be here for one year as we join the Carmel Multi Academy Trust. A recent visit from the DFE recommended that we should be fast tracked into The Multi Academy Trust as they felt the School was in a strong position. This was also echoed in a recent section 8 visit from Ofsted. I feel sure Mr Hammill has all the qualities to guide us to be an outstanding School.

I believe I have left the School in a very healthy financial position and last year we achieved the best examination results we have ever had. Again thank you for all your help and support over the years and good luck for the future.

Yours sincerely




Mr J Smith

Head Teacher
