We are delighted to tell you that Ruth Bienkowski has been appointed as our new, permanent deputy head teacher. We had a very high level of interest in the deputy post so the competition was very tough. However, after a gruelling day of assessment tasks and interview, Ruth was the clear favourite with the interview panel. Ruth is currently on loan to Yattendon in the role of ‘acting deputy’, and will take up the permanent post in September. Please introduce yourself to Ruth if you haven’t already had a chance.
