For the past few months the Governing Body has been working closely with the Diocese, the Local Authority and Mr Smith to ensure a smooth transition into Campus Whitehaven.
The Governing Body wishes to confirm that our Headteacher, Ian Smith, has decided to commence a phased retirement with effect from 1 September 2018. The Governing Body has agreed Mr Smith will be working 4 days per week and will retire fully on 31 August 2019. As a result of this development, we will be advertising a Headteacher post in the Autumn term in order to plan for succession. The governors will be fully engaged in the recruitment process and will endeavour, as far as reasonably practicable, to keep our school community appraised as we move forward together at this exciting time.
