am delighted and honoured to have been appointed as the new headteacher for ACE, and I’m very keen to get to know all our pupils, parents, carers and staff.  

From my experience of being in education for 19 years, I know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together. I have worked in Alternative provision and Pupil Referral Units for twelve years, the last 9 as a school leader.  During that time, I have witnessed the transformative impact the right form of education can have on the lives of young people. I and the whole staff team at ACE will be committed to working with our pupils to provide them with the best opportunities for achievement and personal growth.

ACE has a history of strong performance. I am looking forward to learning more about the school so that the changes we make in this new chapter are supported by the whole school community.

As parents and carers, you make an important contribution to your children’s achievements, and I’m excited to build on the relationship between you and the school for everyone’s benefit.

I will be hosting drop-in sessions over the next term, and I look forward to meeting many of you there. These meetings will take place at a number of different times in the day and week in the hope that as many families as possible will have the opportunity to attend.

We will be in touch with the details shortly.

I will also be available at the school entrance before and after school, so please do say hello.

You are also welcome to contact me at ACE on 01582 359370 or [email protected]

Kind Regards.
