Dear Parent/Carer and Students,
I am writing to you all today to congratulate our Deputy Head Teacher, Ms Kirsty Protheroe who has just accepted a post to become Head Teacher at The Costello School. Ms Protheroe has been my Deputy Head since I joined Pewsey Vale School five years ago, although she has working in the school since September 2014 as initially Assistant Head Teacher and then Deputy Head Teacher. Throughout this time, Ms Protheroe has worked tirelessly to support our students, staff and parents and has successfully led on teaching, learning and curriculum within the school.
Ms Protheroe has fulfilled a variety of multi-faceted roles which she has been exceptionally successful in and as my Deputy, I have valued her support and counsel as well as her determination in helping me move the school forward. I am very proud of her achievements and know that she will thoroughly relish the opportunity of headship at her new school. I am sure that you will join me in wishing her the best of luck and I look forward to hearing of her successes.
A few words from Ms Protheroe –
‘Whilst sad to leave the Pewsey Vale family, I am excited for the opportunity to take the next step in my career. It has been a privilege to work at Pewsey Vale School and to serve as one of its leaders for the last eight years. I wish Mr Pritchard, my senior colleagues and the remainder of the team the very best of luck for the future. I shall look forward to seeing what great accomplishments lie ahead for Pewsey vale School.’ With my very best wishes, Ms Protheroe
As you are aware our school continues to grow with an increase in the number of students and staff. Over the past few months we have had a very successful recruitment drive resulting in the appointment of several new members of staff and this has had a very positive impact on our capacity for September. This will continue as we begin the process in recruiting a new Deputy Head Teacher, leading to very exciting times ahead for the school.
