Following Ms Smith’s resignation, today is her last day in school. From January Vanessa Ray, Principal of West Lakes Academy, will be acting as Principal on a part-time basis, sharing the role with Bright Tribe Principal, Yvonne Sharples.
Both Vanessa and Yvonne bring a wealth of experience and expertise and will support the academy through this transition until the new Principal is in post. The recruitment process has already started for a permanent Principal for the academy and we are all looking forward to welcoming our new Principal.
The academy and Bright Tribe extend our thanks to Ms Smith for all her hard work for The Whitehaven Academy and wish her the best of luck for the future.
