Letter from the Chair of Governors

21st May 2015

Dear parents and carers,

As you know, Mrs. Simmons has decided to move on to a new challenge next year. The governors are sad to lose a Principal who has done so much to make St. Clements the school it is now and wish her well at her new school.

We are however delighted to be able to let you know that in consultation with the Academy sponsor we have decided to ask Mr. Ricketts to become acting Principal in her place and Miss Shryane to become acting Vice Principal. We are particularly happy to be able to appoint two people who are well known to you all, have worked with Mrs. Simmons closely, and who will ensure continuity in standards and approach for the whole school family, particularly the pupils and staff. We have discussed their vision for the school with them and are confident it will continue to strengthen and improve under their leadership. 

Please join us in welcoming them to their new roles.

Yours faithfully,


Mr. Greg Moss

Chair of Governors
