Associate Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to The Marches School, Oswestry, Shropshire. 

In order to ensure a sustainable future for the North Shropshire based Marches Multi-Academy Trust, Autumn Term 2015 marked the beginning of a transitional year at The Marches School, the lead school within the Trust. The transition involved Mrs Alison Pearson, previously Deputy Headteacher, taking on the role of Associate Headteacher at The Marches School.

This review to staffing arrangements is essential to enable the appropriate strategic capacity across the Trust and ensure standards remain high.

As Executive Headteacher, Mrs Longville will continue to have overall responsibility for the success of both schools but, as Associate Headteacher, Mrs Pearson will now carry out the day-to-day operational running of The Marches School and the duties that this involves. We are passionate about ensuring the students in our learning community have the best opportunities, which means Mrs Longville will remain very active and visible within The Marches School.

Mrs A. Pearson
Associate Headteacher
