I would like you all to know I have informed the Directors and staff of my decision to resign as Headteacher of Buckler’s Mead Academy. I will be leaving at the end of the summer term. This has not been an easy decision to make but for personal reasons my husband and I have decided this is the right time to move back to be with my family in Cheltenham.
An advertisement will soon be placed in the Times Educational Supplement for my replacement and it is anticipated interviews will be held the final week of this term. The new Headteacher will take up their post on 1st September 2019.
It has been an honour and a privilege to lead the academy. I am incredibly proud of the staff and students and all we have been able to achieve. There are many strengths to the academy, including the individuals within it. Thank you for your commitment, loyalty and support since my appointment 8 years ago.
