Head of Year 8 Change

Published on 18th December 2015

Dear Parent/Carer

We are writing to inform you of a change in staffing in relation to your child’s Head of Year from January 2016.

As you will be aware Mrs Cannon has been in charge of Year 8 as Head of Year since your child started at Fernwood School in Year 7.  Currently Mrs Cannon has two important roles in school, one as Safeguarding Co-ordinator and the other as Head of Year 8.  As the role of Safeguarding Co-ordinator has grown significantly over the last two to three years Mrs Cannon will be concentrating on this role from January onwards.

As a result Miss Bamlett, who has been working alongside Mrs Cannon as Assistant Head of Year for the last two years (and with significant experience of the pastoral role) will from January take charge of Year 8 for the rest of the academic year.

We hope you will join us in thanking Mrs Cannon for all of her work with Year 8 up until this point and wishing Miss Bamlett well in her new role from January.  Mrs Cannon will continue to support Miss Bamlett in ensuring a smooth handover and continuity of pastoral care and guidance for your child.

Should you have any queries/questions, please do not hesitate to contact us in school.

Yours sincerely


Mrs T Rees – Headteacher
Mrs M Morrill – Head of Lower School
Mrs A Cannon – Safeguarding Co-ordinator
Miss S Bamlett – Acting Head of Year 8


Head Teacher – Mr P Burke
