Letter from the Chair of Governors

Dear Parents and Carers

As you know Mrs Hill is retiring at the end of the academic year after 17 years of highly successful and dedicated service to Pool Academy as Principal. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Governors, staff, students, parents and carers to thanks Mrs Hill for everything she has given the school during this time.

On behalf of the governing body, I am delighted to announce that we have appointed Miss Claire Meakin as our new Principal. Miss Meakin is currently our Vice Principal and has worked at the academy for over 8 years.

Miss Meakin will commence this role from 1st September 2017 and during the next term, Mrs Hill and Miss Meakin will work closely together to ensure a smooth transition for the academy and the local community.

The Governors and I have every confidence that Miss Meakin will continue to take the academy from strength to strength.

Yours sincerely

Mr Nick Lake

Chair of Governors
