WELCOME from the Principal
I am extremely excited to have joined Sherwood Academy in September 2014, overseeing both Years 10 and 11 during their important GCSE years. I am really looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead for all of our students.
I join Sherwood Academy from Eastwood Comprehensive School, where I have been both Head of School and Deputy Headteacher, overseeing teaching and learning. I have worked closely with the Redhill Academy Trust who will be sponsoring Eastwood as of September this year. I have a clear vision for Sherwood and am committed to providing an ambitious learning environment for all of our students which is tailored to individual needs so that all of our students can achieve their very best. I also look forward to ensuring that all students at Sherwood Academy have access to a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. This will allow all of our students to access a broad and balanced education whilst continuing their studies at Sherwood Academy.
Sherwood Academy will remain sponsored by E-ACT until March 2015. However, the day to day running of the academy will be led by myself with the support of the Redhill Academy Trust and Andy Burns, Executive Principal. E-ACT will continue to monitor the success of the academy and support improvement.
We will be holding termly parent evenings to discuss student progress and celebrate ongoing achievements. In addition, I would like to invite all parents in for a catch-up meeting on Tuesday 16th September at 6pm. This will give us the opportunity to catch-up on how the start of the academic year is going as well as to share any concerns, so that we can move forward positively together.
I look forward to once again meeting many of you then.
See all news
