Mr Wilson announced as new Principal

We are pleased to announce that Mr Michael Wilson has been appointed as Principal at here at Alde Valley Academy. Mr Wilson has been Acting Principal at the school since January and we are delighted that he has now joined us on a permanent basis to lead us on our continuing improvement journey.

Prior to joining Alde Valley Academy as Acting Principal, Mr Wilson was Deputy Headteacher at Sir John Leman High School in Beccles, a school which is in the top 3% most-improved schools in the country, and in 2015 achieved the highest-possible rating from the Local Authority following its GCSE results.

Mr Wilson played a critical role in this improvement and success and is looking forward to playing a long-term role in the on-going improvement journey at Alde Valley Academy.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Wilson said: “It is an absolute privilege to be leading Alde Valley Academy and I have no doubt that the academy will continue to thrive and improve. The students, staff and parents have been extremely supportive of me since my arrival in January and I know that together we will go from strength to strength.”
