Laurie Cornwell appointed to Deputy CEO of Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust

The OHC&AT Board of Directors and some of our pupils, students and staff carried out a competitive Executive Head Teacher/Deputy CEO recruitment and selection process in May. Laurie Cornwell, who is currently Executive Head of Young People’s Academy and The Skills Hub, was successful and will start this new role on 1st September 2019.

Laurie said “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as Executive Principal at TSH and YPA. Having the opportunity to work with such inspiring young people has been an honour and a privilege. Whilst saddened to be moving on I am comforted by the fact that I will still be working closely with both schools and will still have many opportunities to see our students  progress.”

Thank you, and God bless you for all the work you have done with my son. It feels like I have my son back.
