There will be a change to the leadership structure at Sewell Park Academy.
Rightforsuccess Trust has recently reviewed the way its Secondary Academies work and have come to the conclusion that it isn't realistic to expect the Head Teachers to be responsible for both the significant day-to-day demands of running an academy as well as leading on new developments.
With that in mind, we are implementing a new leadership model which consists of an Executive Head across both of the Trust's secondary academies who will be focused on development across both academies, and two Head of Academy roles, responsible for the day-to-day running of their respective academies. This will effectively provide extra support in all aspects for the academies.
Following an interview and assessment process conducted across last week, I can now advise you that Mrs Penny Bignell has been appointed to the Executive Head role, with our Senior Director, Mr David Day, being appointed Head of Academy at Sewell Park.
These changes will be phased in across May to July to ensure there is no disruption for students, with a view to being fully in place for the beginning of the new academic year in September.
This marks an exciting development for Sewell Park Academy as we continue to go from strength to strength, providing the very best education for our students and high expectations for all.
