Dear Parents and Carers
I am delighted to announce that the Governing Body of the Academy have recently appointed Mr Dayle Coe to the post of Head Teacher to commence 1st September 2017.
Currently Mr Coe is Vice Principal at Outwood Grange Academy and holds particular responsibility for the quality of teaching, learning and attainment.
In the meantime, our Academy will continue to be very ably led and managed by Mr Jaffer who, on Mr Coe’s arrival, will resume his substantive post of Deputy Head Teacher. Together, Mr Coe and Mr Jaffer with the rest of the staff team will continue the drive to make Chapeltown Academy the most outstanding 6th form provision in the region.
Chapeltown Academy's interim Head Teacher, Ali Jaffer, becomes Acting Headteacher from 1 January 2016 until September 2017. During this period the Governing Body will be seeking to make a permanent appointment to start in September 2017.
The Academy is very grateful to Mrs Rebecca Maxted who served as Principal Designate from 1 January 2014 to August 31 2014 and then became the Academy's first Head Teacher from September 1st 2014 until 31 December 2015. She now has gone on to lead and set up a series of International Schools in Beijing and across the far East. To read further on this, please click here.
