We are delighted to inform you that we have appointed Mr Mark Richards as the new Headteacher for Sandcross Primary School. Mark joins us from the local Good Shepherd Trust in Guildford where he is currently Executive Headteacher for St John’s Primary School in Dorking and St Marks and All Saints schools in Godalming. He is an experienced headteacher with a very strong record of leading teaching teams to provide excellent education within Surrey. His leadership took St John’s Primary School to the number one performing school in Surrey and in the top 5% of schools for pupil progress nationally for four years running. Having visited Sandcross a couple of times, he has already commented on what a special place Sandcross is and how much potential there is for every member of staff and every pupil to grow and excel. Mr Richards will start with us in the Summer Term of 2020. We are all very excited about his appointment and look forward to introducing him to everyone.
