The Balcarras Trust is delighted to announce that we have appointed Mrs Helen Wood to be the Headteacher of The High School Leckhampton.
Mrs Wood is currently the Senior Deputy Headteacher at Prince Henry’s High School in Evesham and will take up post in January. The CEO of The Balcarras Trust, Dominic Burke, said, “We are absolutely thrilled that Mrs Wood will be joining us to be the Headteacher of The High School Leckhampton and we are confident that under her leadership the school will provide a first rate education for its young people.”
Speaking shortly after her appointment Mrs Wood said, “I'm over the moon to have been appointed as the Headteacher of The High School Leckhampton. It's such a tremendous honour and privilege to work alongside the Balcarras Trust, who have already spent many months designing and planning the school, in bringing it into fruition.”
Mrs Wood is due to take up post in January although she is keen to get involved straight away. "I can’t wait to get started. My first priority will be to share my vision for the school with prospective parents at the open events next week.”
Speaking about her long term aim Mrs Wood said, “I am absolutely committed to creating a first-class school to serve the local community and it's a wonderful prospect to be leading a school that is already so strongly supported by parents.”
If you are interested in The High School Leckhampton then please do join us at one of the open events that start next week. Due to high levels of demand we will be scheduling more events shortly.
