Dear Parents and Carers,

As we reach the end of another school year it seems appropriate to quote Socrates:


“The secret of


is to focus all of your energy not on

fighting the old, but

on building the new”



What a year of change this has been: many of you have become home teachers, amateur hairdressers and a host of others things; ourselves included.  However, what has remained steadfast are our amazing children and young people. Alongside the teachers, senior leaders, support and admin staff who work tirelessly for their greater good.

Whilst the school site was closed and whilst we’ve had a limited number of pupils in school - all staff have used the time to invest in the future of Heatherwood. The school continues to grow and evolve and is subject to change from September. When it is our absolute pleasure to welcome

Bridget Coy

Head of School.


This is a positive for the school as we strive for permanence to facilitate the next stage of the school’s journey.  I will remain as Executive Headteacher; and I am delighted to be staying part of the family. 

However, before we officially welcome Bridget please join me in thanking Daryl for everything he has done for the school and its community; in his role as Acting Headteacher. I am, and remain, forever grateful.  Similarly, thanks go to Dan and Suzanne for acting up into senior positions during this period of transition.  

May I end by extending my thanks to the remainder of the leadership team and wonderful staff at Heatherwood for their continued hard work, support and dedication despite enduring the most challenging of school years. 

And not least to wish you, our families, a most pleasant and safe summer.

Kindest regards.
