Dear Parents/Carers

I am writing to inform you that Mr Chappell has been appointed as Headteacher of Beverley Grammar School and will leave The Market Weighton School in July 2015 to begin his new position in September 2015.

On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to take this opportunity to say that Mr Chappell will be leaving TMWS in a strong position ready for the next chapter in the life of the school.

Moving forward, I would like to assure all parents and carers that the Governing Body has in place a robust recruitment process and in the New Year will be implementing plans to advertise and recruit the very best candidate to lead TMWS forward into a new era. The Governing Body will endeavour to make the transition of leadership as smooth as possible.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Yours sincerely

Rachel Davies Chair of Governors
