Mrs Hitch's successor announcedPosted on 27/01/2017
After an extensive application and interview process, our current Deputy Headteacher, Martin Atkinson, has been appointed by the Governing Body to be Beaumont's new headteacher, commencing September 2017.
Six applicants from schools across the county were selected for the two day appointment process which involved panels comprising governors, staff and students. Three candidates were selected for the second day and at the conclusion of the process, Chair of Governors, Alex Hall, made the following announcement:
'I am delighted to let you all know that the Governor Recruitment Panel unanimously decided yesterday to offer the post of Headteacher at Beaumont School to Mr Martin Atkinson and he has accepted.
This decision was ratified by the Governing Body last night. The candidates were all put through a very testing and robust process, and we were convinced that Mr Atkinson was the right person for the job. He will take up the post from 1 September 2017'.
The announcement was made formally to the staff this morning at a briefing meeting and was met with cheers and applause.
