INSET CLOSURE - Friday 27th November
Staff Training Day


Welcome to the Sir Herbert Leon Academy

As many of you know, I have been supporting the Academy since the end of April in the absence of a substantive Principal. I am delighted now to be able to introduce you to our new Head of School, Dr Jo Trevenna.  I have taken on the role of part time Consultant Principal, supporting Dr Trevenna over the next year as she gradually moves into the role of Principal. We still have a great deal of work to do if we are to ensure that the Academy improves so that we can be confident that all of our students benefit from a high quality, personalised education, but I am confident that Dr Trevenna and the rest of the team have the skills and dedication required.

I would also like to welcome our new Chair of Management Board, Louise Soden. Louise is an extremely experienced education professional and was, until recently, the Regional Director for Ofsted in the East Midlands. You can read her full profile on our Governors page.

I am very pleased to be joining the Academy as Head of School. SHLA is dear to my heart having worked at Leon School and Sports College as Director of Milton Keynes South Sixth Form under the Headship of Simon Viccars. I spent my childhood in Bletchley and have seen the town evolve as Milton Keynes has developed and expanded into such a vibrant and exciting place to live. I am committed to supporting staff and students to ensure that our students enjoy a successful education, achieve the best possible grades and are well prepared for the next stage of their lives. The staff at the Academy are positive and determined to work hard with students from Year 7 to Year 13. As we begin this new academic year, our focus is on ‘Back to Basics’ as we ensure that learning is focused, skills and knowledge are advanced and students learn effectively. This is a wonderful time to be joining SHL and I am very proud to  be part of the Academy community.
