Announcement 2

Leadership at Dawlish Community College

Dear Parents and Carers

 Following on from the communication you will recently have received with regards to Mr Simon leaving Dawlish Community College, I would like to make you aware that I will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the college for this term. We remain part of the Formal Management Partnership with Newton Abbot College with Mr Cornish as our Executive Principal. Mr Cornish and I will continue to work together with the rest of the school leadership team and the wider staffing body to care for and educate your child/children.


All college systems remain in place so please continue to contact Heads of School and pastoral staff for wellbeing concerns and Directors and Learning and teaching staff for academic queries. However, should there be any issues that you feel require my attention please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the college.
