You will know that I have been acting as Executive Principal for Tendring Technology College and Clacton Coastal Academy.
Michael Muldoon has been Head of TTC Academy since September 2015. This position has been confirmed and from January 2016 I will continue to be Executive Principal across both Academies.
CCA have now appointed a Head of CCA Academy, Mrs Neill, and I am delighted to be working in support of these two Headteachers.
Mr Muldoon will be supported by a strong senior team that includes Mrs Lewis, Head of Thorpe campus, Mrs Shipp, Head of Frinton campus, Vice Principals Mrs Andrews, Mr Saunders and Mr Byford. All other senior team positions remain the same and I am confident that we have an excellent team to support our staff and students through the rigours and increasing challenges of the new examination system.
TTC believes in collaboration with other schools and Academies, we learn a great deal from our partners in the Tendring Teaching School Alliance and the Challenge Partners Hub, while at the same time supporting colleagues and students across the region and beyond.
Our Initial Teacher training is second to none with our trainees qualifying at the highest academic level. This is not replicated by some other local providers. This ensures that we have a constant influx of highly trained and committed teachers. At a time of acute teacher shortage across the country this is essential for the success of our students.
