Dear Parents & Carers


As you know, Mrs Chell is retiring in July after 15 years of dedicated service to Alverthorpe St Pauls School as Head Teacher, during which time she has worked tirelessly to develop it into the friendly, successful school that it is today.  I want to take this opportunity on behalf of the Governors, staff, pupils, parents and carers to thank her for everything that she has achieved and done for the school during this time.


I am now able to advise you that following a rigorous selection process involving Governors, staff, pupils, and representatives of the local authority and the diocese, we have appointed Mr Lee Swift as the new Head Teacher of this school, to start in September.


Mr Swift is currently the Deputy Head Teacher at St James’ School, Crigglestone, and he is very much looking forward to meeting you and the children.


Yours sincerely





Pam Denton

Chair of Governors
