I am delighted to introduce myself as the new Headteacher at Haygrove School. Previously the Deputy Headteacher, 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 of Haygrove School.
This is an excellent school with wonderful students and staff, supports by parents, carers and other key stakeholders in our community. It is my intention to continue to provide young people with the skills and opportunities to excel by delivering a well-rounded education that encourages creativity, measured risk-taking, active participation, leadership and above all, respect for ourselves and those around us.
I am 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 the core subjects but also invests heavily in the arts, humanities, sports, technology, personal development and careers education, combines with a packed calendar of extra-curricular activities so that students are able to challenge themselves and have new and rewarding experiences outside the classroom.
Work began on our long-awaited new school building in August 2019. Currently the site is being prepared for construction and when completed, will provide a modern, purpose built school environment with significantly enhanced facilities.
In order to appreciate why Haygrove School is such a good school, I would like to invite you to come and visit 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, but if you are not able to attend any of these dates, 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 by working in partnership that we are able to ensure our students feel safe, happy and valued.
Mr A Reid, Headteacher Mrs K M Canham, Executive Headteacher
