Popular Headteacher to say goodbye

 The headteacher of Warboys Community Primary School has stepped down from her role, after eleven years at the school and seven years as Headteacher.

Angela Boxall joined Warboys as Deputy Headteacher in 2008 and took up the position of Headteacher in 2012. Throughout her time at Warboys, Angela has taken the school on a journey of significant improvement and success, with the school receiving a good Ofsted rating in November 2017.

The Ofsted report particularly praised Angela’s dedication to improving standards. Inspectors said: “The determined and committed leadership of the headteacher has ensured a relentless drive for improvement. This has helped to secure gains in teaching and a shared commitment from staff to improve the school further.”

Angela said: “It has been a real honour to serve as Headteacher of Warboys for the last seven years and I will look back on my time at the school with a real sense of pride in what we have achieved. With the support of my fantastic colleagues, we have taken the school on a fantastic journey of improvement and I am proud to say that every child at our school receives a fantastic education, in which they are developed as a whole individual.”

At the start of the Easter term, new headteacher, Becky Ford, will take on the role of Headteacher at the school, bringing with her a wealth of experience in leading schools.

Angela’s last act as headteacher has been managing the process of joining local multi-academy trust, Thomas Deacon Education Trust (TDET). Warboys joined TDET on the 1st April and is the fifth school to join the multi-academy trust, alongside Gladstone Primary Academy, Queen Katharine Academy, Thomas Deacon Academy and Upwood Primary Academy.

Speaking about her decision to join TDET, Angela said: “I am really excited for the future of Warboys as part of TDET. After receiving our Good Ofsted rating, the next important step for us was to find a like-minded group of schools that we could work with to share our knowledge and improve even further. TDET has a very similar ethos and values to our own and in the short time we have been working with the Trust, we have already begun to feel the benefits of being a part of their collaborative network.”

Julie Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of TDET, said: “We are delighted to welcome Warboys Community Primary School to our Trust. As a successful school, Warboys bring to TDET a wealth of knowledge and experience that they will be able to share with our other schools, while continuing to learn and improve themselves. I am excited to see what we can achieve as our schools continue to work together to provide the best education for the children in our communities. I would like to wish Angela all the best in the future and look forward to working with Becky in her new role in the Summer term.”
