New Y10 Year Team Leader

Further to Mr John’s letter in January I am writing to let you know that we have appointed Mr O’Malley as the Y10 Year Team Leader and he will take up his post in April.

We would like to invite you to an Information Evening at 5.30pm on Tuesday 7 May where you will have a chance to meet Mr O’Malley in person. We will also use this evening as an opportunity to talk about the end of year exams taking place in July and arrangements for Work Experience.

Mr O’Malley has been a tutor with the year group since they started with us in Y7 and has taught the majority of the students in his role as geography teacher. This experience puts him in an excellent position to continue the pastoral work Miss Kidd has been doing to support the cohort. He is very keen to support the cohort through to their public exams in 2025 as well as to work with our Careers and Sixth Form teams to ensure students have excellent post-16 pathways. I am confident he will fulfil these ambitions well.

Mr O’Malley and Ms Kidd are working closely together this term on their handover, and I will of course continue in my role as Director of Learning for KS4 with the overall responsibility for the cohort until the end of Y11.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday 7 May and in the meantime I know you will join me in wishing Jess Kidd all the best in her new role.

With my best wishes,

Dixie McLean
Director of Learning – KS4
