Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers

On the last day of the school year, I would like to thank all our parents and students for their support. My favourite duties are on the gate at the start or end of school so I can appreciate just how many students we have (we will open with around 1,700 next September) and how dedicated they are to their learning, to taking opportunities and to each other. The nature of the profession is that we will (rightly) spend more time with those who struggle from time to time, but that isn’t to say we take for granted just how hard our students work and how supportive of the school they, and their parents, are.

I would also like to take a moment to thank our departing staff for their work with Myton School: Rachel Davis, Irene DeJuan, Alex Denethorn, Julie Edwards, Rebecca Friesen, Al Harris, David Iles, Katie Irving, James Kaye, Leah Richardson, Alex Simpson and Alex Town. It has been a pleasure to work with all of them and I wish them well for the future. (more…)
