Governors Announce New Head


Following on from the retirement of Peter Monk, the Board of Governors have now held interviews for his successor.

On behalf of the Board, I am delighted to announce that we have appointed Craig Patterson as the new Headteacher for our school. Craig was already acting Headteacher and will begin his new role immediately.

Craig was appointed against competition from a strong field of national candidates in a three day assessment process. He impressed the student and staff panels as well as the Governor panels in his presentations. You will already be familiar with Craig through his role as teacher since 2005 and more recently as Deputy Headteacher for the last two years. He has already gained good experience from a range of management roles. As a Board of Governors, we are confident Craig will build on this experience to lead the school from strength to strength.

On behalf of the Board of Governors, I would like to thank Peter Monk for his years of service to the school and to congratulate Craig on his appointment. I hope you will join me in wishing Craig all the best in his new post and supporting him in his aim to take Friesland on to become an outstanding School.

Yours sincerely

Martin Garnett

Chair of Governors
