Bridge Schools Trust is pleased to announce the appointment of Jane Wills as new Head of School at Polruan Primary Academy. Jane originally taught at Polperro Primary Academy which joined Bridge Schools Trust in 2016.  Jane is an experienced teacher and one of our Visible Learning Leads across the Trust supporting the implementation of ‘VL’ across all schools delivering training to Impact Coaches.

 Over the years Jane has developed her leadership skills and knowledge to enable her to successfully move into this headship role at Polruan Primary Academy.  We are very pleased that she applied for and accepted this post.  She is sure to have received a warm welcome by the staff, children and parents, as she stepped into her new role at the beginning of September.
