Welcome to Seaham High School
I feel privileged to have been elected to the Chair of Governors at Seaham High School and hope to continue the vital contribution made by Mrs Ramshaw who retired from the post this year.
I have been involved in secondary education for the last forty years in various roles- Headteacher, leadership training, government projects and consultancy. In these positions I have worked in many schools, not only in the north east but in other parts of the UK. These experiences enable me to recognise the truly excellent work done by Seaham staff and students. There is a vitality, expertise and commitment from teachers which engages pupils to provide the best possible outcomes. Examination results particularly in the last four years have been outstanding. The corporate life of the school is endlessly creative gaining national recognition for its many ventures.
This year will be particularly exciting, balancing an intention to build on recent achievements, alongside the extensive planning required to facilitate the smooth transition to new premises in 2016. Staff, students and governors are more than equipped to deal with these exciting challenges.
