Cannock Chase High School
Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing on behalf of the Governors to let you know that, at the end of this term, Mr Barrie Scott will be retiring as our Headteacher. Mr Scott is in his sixth year of headship here, and will be leaving us to take up the post of Vicar in a parish in the Diocese of Birmingham. The Governors would like to thank Mr Scott for all he has done during his time at the school. He has been an inspirational, forward thinking Headteacher who will leave behind a strong and committed team who will continue to work together to maintain the improvements and high standards that are the strength of the school.
Mr Iain Turnbull, who is currently the Deputy Headteacher, will be Acting Headteacher from
1 January 2015. In November the Governors will advertise for a new Headteacher, with a view to making an appointment to start in April 2015. Mr Turnbull has worked closely with Mr Scott over the years and this should ensure a seamless transition in January.
In the meantime, it will be ‘business as usual’, with Mr Scott, Mr Turnbull, the Governors, staff and senior leadership team all working to ensure that the school continues to move forward so that our students’ school life is the best experience possible during their time at Cannock Chase High.
Mr Scott will be greatly missed by Governors, colleagues, students and parents. We hope you will join us in wishing Mr Scott a very happy retirement and we look forward to your continued support over the coming months.
