HEADLINES PICTURE_140314 Jeremy Turner (Small)Executive Principal & Headteacher recruitment

On Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th March, Trustees and Governors assessed the exceptionally strong candidates for the position of Executive Principal & Headteacher.

After a series of interviews, exercises and meetings with staff and students, we are delighted to inform you that we have appointed Jeremy Turner to the position.

Jeremy is currently the Headteacher at Friern Barnet School in North London. In his time there, the school has been transformed from one requiring improvement to one rated as Outstanding by Ofsted.

In his interviews Jeremy showed a clear vision for the future of the Trust, as well as innovative ideas for the continued improvements in teaching and learning.

Jeremy will officially take up his post in September, however he is very keen to get to know the school, the students, the staff and the parents as soon as possible.  We will keep you informed of any such arrangements.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support through the recruitment process. We would also like to thank Ms Morawska and her Senior Leadership Team who have led the school through this transitional period with distinction and will continue to do so until the end of the school year.
