  • Letter from Learning Partners Trust and Chair of Governors

    Published 14/03/23

    We are writing to inform you of some news for the Stoughton and Northmead school communities. 

    As you may be aware Debbie Brown, the long-standing Headteacher of Northmead Junior School, is retiring at the end of this academic year. 

    As a result, Learning Partners Academy Trust, along with the governing bodies of both schools, began to explore the possibility of an Executive Headteacher serving both Northmead Junior School and Stoughton Infant School. 

    Following a robust interview process on Monday 6th March, we are delighted to announce that Sarah Carrington, the current Headteacher of Stoughton Infant School, will be the Executive Headteacher of both the infant and junior school from September 2023.

    In the meantime, Sarah Carrington will be working closely with both school teams to ensure that any resulting change is purposeful and supports all children and staff across both schools.

    We feel that this is a great opportunity for both schools to collaborate and align further, serving the same community. 

    There will be an opportunity in the summer term for parents to hear from Sarah Carrington.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s school.   

    We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Sarah Carrington and offer our support in making every success of her new role.

    Kindest regards,

    Konstanze Hild (Chair of Governors Northmead)

    Rob Edwards (Chair of Governor Stoughton)

    Jack Mayhew (CEO Learning Partners Trust)

    I hope you all enjoyed a good half-term break with your families.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your kind supportive comments regarding my decision to retire at the end of the summer term. This was not an easy decision to make as Northmead has been a huge part of my life for many years. I have thoroughly enjoyed working in this happy, busy school and being part of the Stoughton community, supporting your children with their education and seeing them grow into confident, independent young people. I am confident this is the right time to move on as the school is in a strong place with a dedicated team of staff who will continue to move the school forward.
