Posted on by Bright Tribe
Bright Tribe has appointed a new Executive Principal Mr Jeremy Rowe to further strengthen the Trust’s regional team and to support our academies on their journey to improvement.
Mr Rowe is currently Headteacher at Sir John Leman High School in Beccles, Suffolk where he has led the school for eight years to becoming one of the most prestigious and sought- after secondary schools in East Anglia. The school is in the top 3% in the country for the huge, and sustained, improvements in its GCSE results, as well as having earned a national reputation for the excellent behaviour expected of students. The school has also been shortlisted for the Times Educational Supplement’s School of the Year Award 2016 and will find out whether it has won on 24 June 2016.
The new Executive Principal has a number of other educational accolades under his belt, including spending two terms working as Executive Headteacher of Sewell Park Academy in Norwich, which became the third-most improved school in Norfolk.
On his most recent appointment, Mr Rowe comments: “I am delighted to be working with the Trust. I have a proven track record of improving schools and making them ‘outstanding’ and I look forward to delivering similar improvements within our Bright Tribe schools.”
Mr Rowe’s appointment has been welcomed by Mary McKeeman, Director of School Improvement at Bright Tribe, who stated: “This is an incredibly positive development for the Trust and I am excited for our schools in anticipation of the journey ahead.”
