14th January 2020
Ms Gair has submitted her resignation, as Principal of Orchard Mead. The Trust would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms Gair for all her hard work, dedication and drive as Principal at Orchard Mead Academy.
Ms Hindocha, (Director of Secondary Education at TMET and formerly Principal at Rushey Mead Academy), will take up the full time role of Executive Principal, and Mr Oldman, our new Trust Director of Inclusion, will work alongside Ms Hindocha.
We would like to reassure parents and carers that there will be continuity during this transition, as Ms Hindocha in particular, has been working in the school for a long period of time. She is also a very experienced, highly successful and nationally recognised school leader. Mr Oldman, (recent winner of Headteacher of the Year) will bring many new ideas and energy to the school.
As always, we count on your continued support for the ongoing hard work taking place at Orchard Mead, by pupils and staff.
