Dear Parents and Carers
I am writing to let you know of some temporary changes to the leadership arrangements at Thistley Hough Academy. These have been put in place to cover the absence of the Principal of the Hart School in Rugeley, a sister school within the Creative Education Trust.
With immediate effect, Mrs Hartley, currently Principal at Thistley Hough Academy, will be taking up a temporary position as Executive Principal of both Thistley Hough Academy and The Hart School, whose Principal is currently recovering from surgery. Mrs Hartley will retain oversight of Thistley Hough, whilst its day to day management and leadership will be the responsibility of the current Vice Principal, Mrs Reid who will be supported by Ms Schofield, Senior Assistant Principal. Mrs Reid’s interim title will be Acting Principal and Ms Schofield will be the Acting Vice Principal.
Mrs Hartley will split her time between the two schools and will be working very closely with the Creative Education Trust and with leaders at both schools to ensure that they continue to develop and provide excellent education.
I am sure that you will wish to join me in wishing Mrs Hartley well and in supporting Mrs Reid and Ms Schofield, in whom the Trust and I have full confidence.
Chair of Local Governing Body
Thistley Hough Academy
