I am writing to inform you that Mrs Hooson, Head of School at Shrewsbury Academy has decided to resign from her post with effect from 31st December 2017.
After discussion with both the Shrewsbury Academy Local Governing Body and the Shrewsbury Academies Trust Board, it has been agreed that I will take up the position of Headteacher at Shrewsbury Academy on an interim basis from 1st January 2018.
Although the length of the interim period has not been finalised, the most likely timeframe is until the end of the current academic year – July 2018 with a new Head being appointed for September 2018.
I should like to thank Mrs Hooson for the incredible hard work, professionalism and commitment she has demonstrated initially as Acting Head of School at Sundorne School, then as Head of School at Sundorne School and since 1st September 2016, as Head of School at Shrewsbury Academy.
Mrs Hooson has led the school through a challenging period of transition including the merger of the former Grange and Sundorne Schools which has involved significant staffing restructure.
We wish Mrs Hooson all the best for the future.
