Bridgwater College Academy Appoints a New Head Teacher



The Bridgwater College Trust Board and the Local Governing Body at Bridgwater College Academy are delighted to announce the appointment of Mrs Rachael Fraser to the position of Head Teacher at the Academy starting this coming September.

Rachael is currently Deputy Head Teacher at the Blue School, in Wells and was previously Assistant Head Teacher at Chilton Trinity School in Bridgwater.  As a former literacy consultant, Rachael has worked as a lead practitioner with most Secondary schools in Somerset and will no doubt use her broad experience and English teaching background to good effect.

Of the new job Rachael said, “I am really looking forward to working with such a positive and optimistic group of students and staff. The Bridgwater College Academy is a really special place where dreams are being pursued and students are reaching, with determination, towards bright futures. I am delighted to become part of that!”

Rachael replaces Peter Elliott at Bridgwater College Academy and she will be responsible for all matters at the Academy from September.  She will be ably assisted by Louise Valeur, who is Head of the Primary phase and Andy Sandercock, who is Head of the Secondary phase.
