Dear Headteacher Applicant

Thank you very much for taking an interest in the position of Headteacher at Thorpe Willoughby Primary School. I hope that you will find the information provided a useful introduction to our school and that you will take the opportunity to apply for the post.

Our governors are seeking to appoint a leader who will build on the school’s many strengths. An overwhelmingly happy and inclusive school, we have very positive relationships with pupils and their families. We are proud of our EMS status and of our work with the traveller community. We have recently completed a building project that will allow us to grow by around 20%. This is in response to a significant house building programme over the last 2 years.

We wish to appoint a Headteacher who will continue to take our school forward, particularly in raising attainment while maintaining our inclusive ethos. In the changing educational environment, there will be many exciting challenges ahead. The school has the benefit of a highly committed, experienced, and loyal team of staff, supportive parents and governing body.

I would encourage you to visit our school in advance of your application and see for yourself the enthusiasm that our children have for their education. Such a visit is not part of the selection process, and whether or not applicants have visited will not influence the final outcome. Please call Karen Burnley, Office Manager on 01757 703996 to make an appointment or email:

I hope you find the information provided useful and informative and that it will encourage you to apply. On behalf of the governing body, thank you again for your interest in our school.

Yours faithfully,

Charlotte Lyon

Chair of Governors
