Head of School Appointment

May 2021
Dear Parents/Carers,

I am writing to inform you that Mr Michael Gamble and Mr Michael Rowbottom have been appointed Co-Heads of The Newbridge School. They will take up the post at the beginning of the Autumn term 2021. The skills they bring together will support our drive to an outstanding educational provision for the two secondary schools in The Apollo Partnership Trust.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Katrina Farragher and Mrs Natalie Fox, on behalf of the Board, for their professionalism during their roles as interim Co-Heads at The Newbridge School and for their continued commitment to the Trust and to the students.

Mrs Farragher will be moving to a Deputy Headship at The Castle Rock School, while Mrs Fox will take up the Deputy Headship at The Newbridge School, both will bring a wealth of experience to their respective senior teams.

Mrs Patrick, CEO and Secondary Executive Headteacher, will be writing to you after the half term break with further details.

Kind regards,

Michala Worrell
Apollo Partnership Trust board
