Chair of Governors Announcement
As Chair of Governors it gives me great pleasure to announce that Mrs Teresa Mpofu has been selected to be the next headteacher of Lawrence Sheriff School.
Four candidates were interviewed and, following a rigorous process of assessing the candidates against carefully chosen criteria in relation to the national standards for Headteachers, it was clear that all of them were destined for headship. However, the decision was unanimous across the board, with input from student, staff andgovernor panels, that they were appointing the strongest candidate.
All candidates acknowledged that the process had been thorough, rigorous and fair.
On taking up the appointment, Mrs Mpofu will make history by being the first female head of Lawrence Sheriff.
The Board of Governors send their congratulations to Mrs Mpofu and wish her every success in her new role.
As previously mentioned by Dr Kent, he will retire on 31 December 2021. Hence Mrs Mpofu will become headteacher of Lawrence Sheriff School from 1 January 2022.
