Headteacher Jane Wallington to retire

Jane Wallington, Headteacher

Dear Parents and Carers,

After twenty one years as Headteacher at Mabel Prichard School I have decided to retire in July 2017.

It has been an amazing experience and privilege to work with some highly talented and dedicated staff aiming to provide a first class education for our very special pupils.

The school is totally unrecognizable to the one I joined in 1996; we are very lucky to have excellent purpose-built buildings.

I’ve lost count of how many pupils have passed through Mabel Prichard School over the years but my greatest pleasure and joy has been witnessing each one of them make progress whether it be academically or personally.

The Governing Body is currently advertising for my replacement. I will of course work with the newly appointed Headteacher in the coming months to ensure there is a smooth transition for the staff and pupils.

I wish you and your families the very best for the future.

Yours sincerely,

Jane M Wallington
