I am delighted to be able to welcome you to the Link School and introduce myself as the Head Teacher. 2017-2018 was another fantastic year for Link School which saw us retaining our Good Judgement at our Tudor Grove Site. In addition, we retained our Inclusion Quality Mark and Anti-Bullying Platinum Award whilst also achieving Stage 2 in the Investors in Careers Award.

I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to take over the leadership of the Link School. My priority as Head Teacher is to ensure the Link School continues to grow on its journey to becoming outstanding. This can only happen with you and your support. Being a mum of two girls, I am very much aware of the importance of family and I really do believe you and your children, as part of our link school family have the strength and passion to ensure that this happens together.
As the Head teacher of the school, I am looking forward to getting to know you and your children over the coming months whilst ensuring children are safe, happy and achieving well whilst they are in our care.
