New Headteacher

Dear Parent/Carer


I am pleased to be able to inform you that we have appointed Gill Lee as our new Head teacher and that she will begin with us after the Easter holidays.


Gill Lee has held senior roles in both industry and education and brings considerable and varied experience to the role. I am delighted that Gill will be joining Newport High and will lead us on the improvement journey already underway which will take us out of Special Measures but also focuses on us becoming a school recognised as excellent.


Gill has said that she is honoured to be joining Newport High School as Headteacher and that she is looking forward to working with students, parents, staff, governors and the wider community:

‘I am passionate about education and the transformational opportunities a great education can deliver and believe that every student has the right to first class provision. I will work tirelessly to ensure that Newport High School becomes a centre for excellence where all students can fulfil their potential in a dynamic, progressive and nurturing environment. ‘


I hope that you will join me in welcoming Gill to our school and community.


Lucy Jackson

Chair of Governors
