Update on Leadership Arrangements at The Castle School
Dear Parents / Carers
As you will be aware, Peter Smart is currently on secondment from The Castle School to Winterbourne International Academy. His secondment as Interim Principal was initially from January 2017 to August 2017, and was subsequently extended to August 2018.
We can now confirm that Mr Smart will be returning as planned to his substantive post at The Castle School in September 2018. Mr Smart has provided much needed stability and clear leadership in supporting Winterbourne through the first phase of its improvement journey, including its transfer into Olympus Academy Trust. The secondment has also offered Mr Smart an invaluable professional development opportunity, and considerable additional experience which he will bring with him on his return to Castle.
I am delighted to confirm that Angie Browne, who has served as Interim Headteacher at The Castle School this year, will remain with CSET in September, joining the Trust’s Education Team, supporting improvement across all our schools.
With best wishes,
