Glyn School Leadership

I am writing to inform you that, following a national recruitment campaign last month, our Headteacher, Phillip Wheatley, has accepted a promotion with the Harris Federation to be the new Principal of Harris Academy Purley.  Mr Wheatley will take up his new post on 1 September 2017.  I understand that you may be disappointed by this news given the commitment that Mr Wheatley has shown alongside the achievements and successes he has delivered since his return two years ago to Glyn School.

As you will be aware, Glyn School is part of GLF Schools and the Trust has been able to work with the Local Governing Body of Glyn School to ensure that its leadership is secure following Mr Wheatley’s departure.  I am pleased to advise that Matt Duffield, Deputy Headteacher, will be returning from his current secondment to lead Glyn from September 2017 as Acting Headteacher.

Mr Duffield will return to Glyn after half term to work with Mr Wheatley to ensure that there is a smooth and strong transition.

Mr Duffield will be supported by the existing members of the Leadership and Management Team. In addition, GLF Schools will deploy further leadership capacity at Glyn from September to support Mr Duffield.  

We will continue to keep you informed via email as appropriate.

Thank you for your time in reading this letter and for your continued support of the school.

Matt Taylor, Chair of Governors

Glyn School, Ewell
