Reference: Appointment of New Principal

13th March 2015

Dear Parent,

Reference: Appointment of New Principal

As you know Tony Downing, our current Principal is retiring from his post at the end of the summer term after being at Caroline Chisholm School for 12 years. We shall all miss him greatly but wish him well in his retirement.

On the 10th and 11th March the Governing Body and staff held selection days to appoint a new successor. After two days of activities and interviews the Governing Body agreed unanimously to appoint Mr. David James to the post of Principal. He has accepted the job offer and will start at school on the 1st September 2015.

Mr. James is currently a Head Teacher in Warwickshire and will bring considerable knowledge and experience to the job. He is very keen to work with parents and the community and I am sure he will be organising opportunities to meet you during the early months of his work here.

We are looking forward to welcoming Mr. James and to working with him from September 2015.

Best Wishes

David Atkinson

Chair of Governors
