Kidderminster Headteacher Signals Change And Search For Successor

The headteacher of Holy Trinity School and Sixth Form Centre in Kidderminster has confirmed that she is to stand down after twelve years as head of the school at the end of the coming autumn term.

Wishing to aid the school’s positive momentum, Mrs Leek-Wright feels now is the time for a new perspective as the school moves through to their next phase of development, whilst also allowing for her to develop her own passion for education beyond the realms of the role of headship.

Mrs Pamela Leek-Wright said: “It has been my privilege to undertake the role of Headteacher and to lead such a unique school and community as Holy Trinity.

“Holy Trinity has changed significantly during this time, from a small independent school to a multi-cultural, co-educational free school, achieved thanks to the commitment and support of our dedicated trustees and staff, who continue to ensure Holy Trinity remains ‘a special place to be’.”

An all-age co-educational school in separate but cohesive primary, secondary and sixth form sections, children enter at age four and can continue through until their school education ends at age eighteen. The school has a strong emphasis on pastoral care and is supported by a strong House system that helps break down year group boundaries.

Added Mrs Leek-Wright: “I am extremely proud of our collective achievements ensuring that within the ever-changing educational landscape and pressures of societal change, Holy Trinity has stood firm and not compromised in its undertaking to provide students with an environment that nurtures respect, empathy, and compassion, and enables life chances.

“I would like to acknowledge and thank Holy Trinity staff for the enthusiasm and commitment they show daily, they are an incredible group of very special people, and I am now looking forward to supporting my successor once appointed as they settle into their new role and wish them, and the school, continued success and happiness.”

Mrs Leek-Wright will officially step down as headteacher on 31st December 2023.
