Five Acres High School

Headteacher Appointment

Please see below a letter from Mike Cooper, Chair of Governors

Dear Parents and Carers,

Further to my letter of 09 March, I am very pleased to be able to inform you that Simon Phelps has been appointed as the new Headteacher for Five Acres High School, with effect from Thursday 19th March 2020.

I am sure you will all be familiar with Mr Phelps as he has been a dedicated member of staff at Five Acres for a number of years, including being Deputy Headteacher and most recently Acting Headteacher alongside Mr Derry.

The Board of Trustees and Local Governing Body have moved swiftly to ensure that we were able to get a new Headteacher in post as soon as possible to lead Five Acres on its continuing journey of improvement; which has become even more significant in the exceptional and challenging circumstances we all find ourselves in due to COVID-19.

I have every confidence that under Mr Phelps’ leadership the senior team and all the school’s staff will continue to work with dedication and commitment to provide the best opportunities they can to all our students.

I would like to send you all my very best wishes and thank you for your continued support in these difficult times.

Mike Cooper

Chair of the Local Governing Body, Five Acres High School
