We are delighted to announce that Melksham Oak Community School has appointed a substantive principal, Alan Henderson. Mr Henderson was previously principal at John O'Gaunt School, Hungerford, where he had been in the role for four successful years.
Replacing interim principal Aidan Blowers, who returns to his previous position of vice principal, Mr Henderson will lead the continued progress made at the school over recent years.
Upon being appointed, Alan Henderson said: “I’m thrilled to be appointed to the role of principal at Melksham Oak. I see such enormous potential within the staff and students of the school. I look forward to working with everyone involved with the school, and The White Horse Federation, to deliver outstanding results.”
In August 2018, Melksham Oak Community School joined The White Horse Federation multi-academy trust. They have overseen our recent progress and are equally excited for the school’s future with Alan at the helm.
Simon Cowley, The White Horse Federation’s Regional Director for Wiltshire, said: ”We’re looking forward to having Alan as the new principal of Melksham Oak. We’ve seen through his previous work that he has the leadership skills to continue the growth of the school. His shared vision for values-based education will raise standards for all and we look forward to hearing positive feedback from the community as he establishes himself within the role.”
Everyone at Melksham Oak would like to welcome Alan Henderson to the school. We are all excited for the future as Alan takes up the position ready for September 2019. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Aidan Blowers for his hard work and diligence as interim principal.
