Appointment of Ms. Cherry Tingle

It is with great pleasure that I write to inform you that, following an extremely rigorous appointment process, the Governing Body have appointed Ms. Cherry Tingle as permanent Principal of Energy Coast UTC. Ms Tingle will take up her post on the 1 September this year although she will be visiting the UTC regularly prior to this date and working with our interim Principal, John Ferguson, to ensure a smooth transition process.

Ms. Tingle comes to us with substantial senior leadership experience having been headteacher at two schools and also having worked at a national level with government departments, policy makers and supporting other school leaders in their roles.

Speaking about her decision to accept the position of leading Energy Coast UTC, Ms. Tingle said:

"It is with great pleasure, and a real sense of privilege, that I have accepted this post. I know Energy Coast UTC has a fantastic future ahead and I look forward to working with staff, students,
parents and employers to ensure every young person attending our UTC achieves their full potential. I have children of my own and will work with our great staff team to make sure the UTC is excellent in every respect and that every aspect of the UTC would be good enough for my own child – and therefore every child.

My focus will be on ensuring students have very high academic achievement whilst also enabling them to achieve the best, employer led, technical and vocational qualifications and
experiences possible. I believe that the employer partnerships we have are amongst the best in the country and I will ensure our students take full advantage of them. We will also focus on
exemplary student behaviour and attendance and superb student welfare services and safeguarding."

I know you will join me in welcoming Ms. Tingle to her post and I thank you for your continuing support.

Yours sincerely

Andrew Crowder
Chair of Governors
