We are delighted to inform you that Mrs Helen Yapp has been appointed to the permanent position of Headteacher at Thomas Gainsborough School with immediate effect. Governors and the trust have continued the selection process that started last term and were very pleased this week to make this appointment.

Mrs Yapp of course knows the school well and has already led the school through this strange period in 2021 with distinction. We have great confidence that she will build on all the great work that has taken place to develop the school with which we are all so proud to be associated and to help it develop, as nothing ever stands still. 

Thank you to you all for your support of your children during this time when the school has not been able to be fully open. We look forward to the school being fully up and running in the next few days.
 Best wishes to you all
Sue Leon
Chair, Local Governing Body
