We are delighted to welcome Mr Atkins as the new Executive Headteacher of the Queen Elizabeth High School / Hexham Middle School Federation.
Mr Atkins joins QE/HMS following 5 successful years as a Headteacher at a school in London. He commented: “I am delighted to be taking up post as Executive Headteacher of Queen Elizabeth High School and Hexham Middle School. The staff, students and governors whom I’ve had the opportunity to meet so far could not have been more friendly and welcoming, and have given me an excellent impression. I am very much looking forward to working with everyone towards the ongoing happiness and success of both schools.”
As Executive Headteacher, Mr Atkins’ role is to ensure that the quality of provision at both schools in the Federation is as it should be, and to set the strategic direction. Mrs Minto, as Head of School, will continue to run Hexham Middle on a day-to-day basis.
