Message from Mike Gunston

Dear Parents / Carers,

I am writing to inform you that I will be leaving The John of Gaunt School at the end of this academic year to take up a new post as Headteacher of the Dyson Perrins Academy in Malvern, Worcestershire.

I am incredibly proud of our school community and it has been a true privilege to serve as Headteacher over the last 4 years. It has not been an easy decision but I feel the time is now right for a new challenge. I feel confident that the school is in a strong position and will continue to thrive in the future.

I joined The John of Gaunt School as Director of PE back in 2007 and have lived in the Trowbridge community throughout this time. It has been a pleasure to get to know so many wonderful families, working together to provide the best education for our young people.

I would like to thank you all for the support you have given me over the last 11 years. The recruitment process for finding my successor is currently being planned. Further details will be shared with parents in due course.

I can reassure you that I remain fully committed to The John of Gaunt School for the remainder of the academic year – business as usual.

Kind regards,

Mike Gunston
