Re: Somercotes Academy Principal Appointment
As you will be aware, Mrs Frances Green has been appointed to the post of Principal at Somercotes Academy with effect from September 2018 following a competitive process involving external candidates as well as those from within the Trust.
Mrs Green has a wide experience in secondary schools and I am absolutely delighted that such a highly capable educationalist will be leading the Academy from September. The appointment shows the value of Somercotes being a member of Tollbar Multi Academy Trust as it can be difficult to find Principals/Headteachers for small rural secondary schools.
I have asked Mrs Green to write a letter to introduce herself to you which is enclosed.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Yates for all her hard work and determination to make Somercotes such a success. As you are aware she has been appointed as Principal of Tollbar Academy. I would also like to thank you for your continued support. I look forward to working with your new Principal in order to take Somercotes Academy from strength to strength.
Mr D J Hampson, OBE
Chief Executive Officer
