Welcome back to everyone and thank you for what has been a very good start in our fabulous new school. This has been a very positive start and builds upon the excellent examination results that our students achieved this summer.
We welcome several new members of staff this term: Rajvinder Taylor joins the Humanities Department as Head of RS; Scott Adams joins the Humanities Department to teach Geography. Though she is not new to the school, also joining the Humanities Department to teach RS is Michelle Hodgkins; Tim Hawkins joins the English Department; also joining the English Department, to cover Sophie Greaves' maternity leave is Sue Brown.
We also welcome to the Educational Support Department to join our team of Learning Support Assistants, Greta Vizma and Karen Sutherland. Philip Chambers rejoins us as a Learning Mentor - so that we can have one Learning Mentor attached to each house. We also welcome Margaretann Fowler to our Administrative Team to work in Student Services; Donna McAllister has moved from Student Services to the Inclusion Team and a further addition to that team is Emma Piechowiak.
We are sure as always that the students will help our new staff to settle in and find their feet - though helping them find their way around might be more of a challenge! (As we are all in the same boat.)
