bitterne park secondary schoolA new headteacher has been appointed for Bitterne Park School and Sixth Form.


According to a letter from governors to parents, Graham Wilson, who’s currently the head at Saint George Catholic College in Swaythling, and who was previously a deputy head at Bitterne Park, will be the post holder from September 2017.

The current head, Susan Trigger, has been confirmed as Executive Headteacher.

Governors say in their letter she “is very much looking forward to a new challenge within the Bitterne Park Teaching School and Alliance, Southampton Riverside Federation [which also includes Townhill Junior School] and future Multi-Academy Trust [MAT] model.”

A MAT is an organisation set up to be accountable for a group of academy schools – schools which are funded directly by the government and outside of local authority control.

While there are already various academies, and academy groups, within the city – Saint George Catholic College is currently consulting with stakeholders about converting for example – Bitterne Park School is still currently maintained by the local authority, Southampton City Council.

The school didn’t respond to a request for comment about staff changes.'re reader powered!
