New Headteacher and Executive Principal at Fen Rivers Academy - March 2020



20th March 2020

Dear Parent / Carer,


We would like to update you on some changes to leadership and management at Catch 22 that effect the Academy that your child attends.


In the process of continuous school improvement, we are always seeking to find new ways to grow and develop our schools and this does mean that changes at times are necessary to provide the best possible education provision for your child.


At The Fen Rivers Academy, we have a new Acting Head Teacher who started on Thursday 15th March and was previously in role as Deputy from 10th February.

Amanda Fewkes is a highly skilled school leader who brings a wealth of experience with her to your child’s academy and to Catch 22 and we are delighted to have her on board. She will be in touch with you soon to share with you her vision for your child’s Academy both for now and in the future.


We also have a new Executive Principal, John Shanahan, who has been promoted to the role from within Catch 22 after a very successful period as Head Teacher with us at one of our other schools. He brings a wealth of experience too and knows and understands Catch 22 well. John will be working closely with your child’s Academy leaders and the new head teacher to ensure that you and your child receive the best possible, support, education and provision possible.


If you have any questions on these matters please do not hesitate to get in touch with Mrs Fewkes, Mr Shanahan or indeed myself.

Your sincerely,


Jane Reed

CEO Education
