We are fortunate that the extra funding has been approved for our new school. This means around a £4 million pound investment in Queen Camel and the rural community the school serves. With electric work to be completed this week we are looking forward to the main contractors moving on site soon.
We are delighted to inform you the Mr Ted Wright has been appointed as Deputy Head Teacher , taking up his post in September 2015 .Mr Wright is passionate about teaching , he particularly enjoys maths, computer science and maths. He will be visiting and getting to know our school during the latter half of the summer term. We also look forward to working with him and embracing his ideas for our new school along side all those that the children, staff and governors are working on.
We were fortunate to have a really strong set of candidates for the deputy head teacher post. Each of them shared their thinking with us about how the school could develop, which will help us move forward and we thank them for what they gave during their time with us.
