THE new acting headteacher at North Bromsgrove High School has said he is committed to making “rapid improvements” at the school.
Worcestershire County Council appointed Lee Gray last week after previous headteacher, Angelina Robin-Jones left her post.
Mr Gray has organised a meeting in the main hall at North Bromsgrove on July 17 so that parents, governors, staff and the County Council can raise their concerns to ensure the school improves.
He said: “Despite starting at the school only recently I am very confident that North Bromsgrove High School will improve rapidly during the next academic year.
“There is no doubt that this school faces significant challenges but the staff and governing body are fully committed to working with parents and the local authority to successfully carry out the improvements that are required.
“We have to ensure that the students at North Bromsgrove are at the heart of all we do, to ensure they have the best experience possible and reach their potential.”
Worcestershire County Councillor Marcus Hart, the Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Education and Skills, added: “I am confident the new leadership at North Bromsgrove High can help to improve the school going forward.”
Mr Gray has taken up the post of acting head teacher on an interim basis and is still currently the substantive head teacher of Studley High School.
The school’s improvement will be closely monitored by the County Council, and support will be given to ensure the improvement plans are implemented effectively.
