It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the new Headteacher at Haygrove School. Having worked here as Deputy Headteacher over the past seven years alongside Mrs Canham,it was my privilege to be appointed by the school governors and entrusted with the future development and leadership of this fantastic school. This change enables Mrs Canham to focus on the development of the Quantock Education Trust whilst still contributing as co-headteacher to the leadership of Haygrove School.
Haygrove is an excellent school with wonderful students and staff, fully supported by parents, carers and other key stakeholders in our community. I am determined that we continue to provide young people with the necessary skills and opportunities to excel by delivering a holistic approach to education that encourages creativity, measured risk-taking, active participation, leadership and above all, respect for ourselves and those around us.
As a regularly much-oversubscribed school, we are justifiably proud of our high academic performance, our positive culture and our ethos of ambition all of which are underpinned by tradition values such as respect and courtesy. Our broad and enriching curriculum, which promotes not only the core subjects but invests heavily in the arts, humanities, sports, practical and personal development including careers education, combines with a packed calendar of extra-curricular activities so that young people have opportunities to challenge themselves and have new and rewarding experiences outside the classroom.
I am delighted to announce that work began on our new school building project in August 2019. Currently the site is being prepared for construction and when completed, will provide from September 2020, a modern, purpose built school environment with significantly enhanced facilities.
In order to fully appreciate why Haygrove School is so popular and successful, we would like to invite you to come for a visit. We look forward to welcoming you to our school so that we can share with you our pride in our achievements and the many outstanding features of our school.We hold Open Events each year in the Autumn Term, if you are not able to attend any of these open events, please give us a call to arrange a visit.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, or any of our leadership team, should you have any queries, concerns or suggestions. It is through working in partnership with parents and carers that we are able to ensure children feel safe, happy, valued and achieve their full potential.
Mr A Reid
Mrs K M Canham
