Dear Parent or Carer
I would like to take this opportunity to share with you that I plan to retire from my post as Academy Head on 31 8 18.
This has not been an easy decision as I have had the privilege of leading a magnificent school with so many wonderful students. However, after 42 years of full time service, I wish now to pursue many other interests I have not had the time to explore more fully.
Teaching is a most fulfilling profession. To be part of helping young people develop into happy and confident adults has given me such pleasure. I have worked with many dedicated colleagues, learnt so much from many students and have had the support of phenomenal parents and carers.
I made this decision 3 years ago and have ensured that Harrogate High School is performing well in every way. Our Ofsted inspection in November confirmed this. Charlotte Clarke will be Acting Academy Head whilst recruitment for the permanent post takes place.
My very best wishes to you all.
