Miss Gledhill will remain as Vice Principal as spend one day a week as our acting principal until the end of June, at which point Mrs Spacey will be full time. Mrs Thornton remains as Executive Principal to support our staff team and governors.

Mrs Spacey said, ‘I am absolutely delighted to be appointed as the new principal – it is an honour to be entrusted with the job of leading such a wonderful academy. Some of you may already be aware that I have been supporting the academy since June of last year. Right from day one I felt an affinity with the children, staff and parents. The whole team have worked incredibly hard to raise standards and ensure the very best for our pupils at Wainwright. The children are a pleasure to be around and I have been so impressed with their impeccable manners, kindness and determination. Their commitment to learning and thirst for challenge is inspiring and I am excited to see the impact of a new balanced and broad curriculum which we are launching in September 2018.

I am looking forward to working with the whole academy community as we strive for even greater success for all our pupils. By working together we can ensure all children enjoy their time at Wainwright, make excellent progress and leave us with the necessary skills and attitudes to lead successful and fulfilling lives.’

We are very excited for the future at Wainwright Primary, and know that the academy will continue to go from strength to strength under Mrs Spacey’s leadership.
