Following a request from Croydon Local Authority, The STEP Academy Trust directors have agreed to enter into a supportive partnership with Applegarth Junior School. The school is currently without a Headteacher and is in need of immediate support, particularly on-site leadership.
Paul Glover (pictured right), who was appointed to lead the next STEP Academy, took up the position of Applegarth Junior School Headteacher from January 2012. Although Mr Glover remains employed by the Trust, he will be based at the New Addington school for the duration of the partnership. The partnership will be reviewed in April 2012.
