Dear Parents/Carers,

As you know since the beginning of term we (the Governors) have been working hard to find Mr Grant’s successor following the announcement of his retirement.

It gives me great pleasure to share with you that Mr John Bennett has been appointed to take on the role of Headteacher at Shevington High School from 1st September 2024. I am sure he will do a brilliant job.

The process was very thorough and detailed, and designed to look at the role from a number of different perspectives.  I am incredibly grateful for the input of the staff, pupils and parents, and, of course, my fellow Governors.

I want to thank you all for your continued hard work and support and wish you a peaceful and refreshing Easter break.

Kind regards and best wishes,

Mr J Royal

Chair of Governors
