New Headteachers at William Perkin & Ada Lovelace
Mr Keir Smith has been appointed to the role of Headteacher, taking full responsibility for the launch of Ada Lovelace CofE High School. Mr Smith has worked at the Twyford Trust for 19 years and for the past 7 years has led the successful establishment and growth of William Perkin CofE High School. He will continue to support William Perkin in a consultancy role and looks forward to building on the relationship between the schools which has developed strongly during the period of co-location.
The role of Associate Headteacher for William Perkin has now been offered to the current Deputy Head, Ms Amy Newman, effective from September 2019. Ms Newman was part of the original team which set up William Perkin and she could not be more passionate about the school’s success. She will continue to work very closely with Mr Smith who will have an overarching responsibility for William Perkin while Ada Lovelace grows to its full capacity.
I am sure you will wish to join me in congratulating them both on these well-deserved promotions.
