Further to our letter to you on 28 September 2016, we can confirm that Mr Jonathan Logan has decided to move on from his role as headteacher at Workington Academy.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Logan for his contribution to Workington Academy and wish him well in the future.
We have appointed Mrs Colette Macklin until the end of this academic year. We have every confidence that she will have a positive impact at the academy. We have received excellent references for Mrs Macklin including an outstanding commendation from her former employer.
Our priority remains our students, their well-being and their education. We are confident that Mrs Macklin will continue with the progress made at the academy and ensure that the academy continues to go from strength to strength.
The opening of the new school building is scheduled for February 2017 and we will write to you again with an update and an opportunity to visit the new building as soon as the contractors are finished on site.
If you have any questions regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact either of us via the academy.
