Headteacher's January Update
I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope that you had a peaceful and relaxing Christmas.
I have mixed feelings at the start of this term as it will be the final one for me as the Headteacher of Dyson Perrins. It has been an absolute privilege to have this role for the last four years and I am looking forward to this final term and to leaving the school in the best possible shape for my successor. To keep you fully up-to-date with the recruitment process for a new Headteacher, the governors at Dyson Perrins coupled with our independent School Improvement Partner will conduct a rigorous two day interview process later this month for those candidates shortlisted. This process has been designed to get the very best leader for our school in order that the staff and students continue to build on the achievements of recent years. The governing body will then write to you all to share the outcome of the interviews and to introduce your new Headteacher.
In the meantime, there are many other significant events on the horizon starting with the Sixth Form mock examinations and the Year 9 class-based assessments, both of which begin next week, Monday 8 January. I would ask parents and guardians of children in these respective year groups to support us in preparing your sons and daughters for the above. They get plenty of guidance in class and at extra sessions but it is vitally important that they conduct their own independent study and revision at home.
