Today we held interviews in school for a new Assistant Headteacher. It was a long, tiring day but full of hope for a wonderful time ahead.
Being a part of the process, hearing young professional people talking about their commitment, love and passion for their subject, student outcomes and their determination was truly inspirational.
Tough choices to be made but it bodes well for us as a team and as a school community.
As a faith school we pray together most mornings and this morning the Chaplain reiterated what a year 13 student had said in his last day with us. He had lost his father whilst at school, but he knew when he returned to school that he would feel safe, and loved as we had all travelled a path together. He was saddened that he would soon embark on a path that his father wouldn’t be a part of, although he was reassured of this that he would be.
An emotionally fulfilling indictment of why we work in education. 🤗
