Grange Junior School is delighted to announce that Kirsty Dickenson has been appointed the school’s new principal. Mrs Dickenson was previously deputy headteacher at Sun Hill Junior School, where she had been in the role for two successful years.
Replacing interim principal Tracy Knight, Mrs Dickenson will use her passion and experience to bring added stability to our school.
Upon being appointed principal, Mrs Dickenson said: “I am thrilled and delighted to be taking up the position of principal at Grange Junior School. My great passion is guiding children through the early years of their education, and I am excited to be in a position to do just that at this great school.”
Mrs Dickenson’s knowledge and expertise will strengthen our leadership team as we build upon the progress we have made in recent months.
Grange Junior School joined The White Horse Federation multi-academy trust in March. The trust is responsible for 32 schools across Swindon, Wiltshire, Gloucester, Oxfordshire, and Berkshire.
Julian Morgan, the federation’s regional director for Swindon, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Kirsty is joining Grange Junior School as principal. Her experience of leading a junior school and her passion for the education of children position both Kirsty and the school for great success.”
As Mrs Dickenson settles into her new role as principal of Grange Junior School, she will enter consultation with staff and parents to learn more about the challenges facing the school and its roadmap for improvement.
In the coming weeks, Mrs Dickenson will communicate her vision and strategy for improvement at the school through a series of blog posts.
