Wadebridge Primary Academy welcome Rebecca Whitlock as Headteacher

We are delighted to announce that Rebecca Whitlock has been appointed as the next Headteacher of Wadebridge Primary Academy part of Bridge Schools Trust. Rebecca will take over in January 2020 from interim Head, Catherine Stoate, former Head of Bridge Schools St Cleer Primary Academy, when she retires at the end of December 2019.

Rebecca has significant experience as a senior leader in a range of diverse settings. As Executive Headteacher of Claycots School in Berkshire, Rebecca swiftly galvanised leaders and staff, raised the effectiveness of teaching, learning and assessment and elevated staff morale gaining the school a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating.

As Head of one of London’s top Independent Primary Schools, Victoria Park, London, Rebecca successfully led a large primary, the oldest and most established prep school in London’s East. Founded in May 1948 by Phyllis Wallbank, a pioneer of education development, in the gatehouse of St Bartholomew the Great Priory Church, West Smithfield. The school was then a pioneer of much that is now generally accepted in education.

Rebecca Whitlock is looking forward to returning to her home county after many years of working in the south eastern corner of the country. We warmly welcome Rebecca as she begin her new role with Bridge Schools Trust at the beginning of the new year. Adrian Massey, CEO of the Bridge Schools Trust, said, “I am delighted to be welcoming Rebecca to the Bridge Schools Trust as the new Headteacher at Wadebridge Primary Academy. Her experience and expertise will further build on the excellent work of the staff and pupils."
