New Principal appointment

We are pleased to announce that Graham Payne has been appointed as the new Principal for Chart Wood School following a competitive recruitment process. We look forward to working with Graham when he takes up this post on 1st September 2019.

Graham is currently Executive Principal for a Multi Academy Trust specialising in Alternative Provision and Special Schools across the country. The Trust has three Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) provisions and will be opening a school for students with Speech, Language and Communication Needs/Autistic Spectrum Disorder in 2021. Previously, Graham was a Headteacher at an Alternative Provision school and has been a Deputy Headteacher in a mainstream school.

 

This is a very exciting and pivotal moment in the lives of St Dominic’s, Brantridge and Grafham Grange schools.  Academy conversion under the sponsorship of Orchard Hill College Academy Trust will help secure their futures and, no doubt, lead to better outcomes for pupils and students, families and carers, staff and all stakeholders.

Ken Cowdery, Chair of Governors
