Oak Tree School Headteacher Appointment
Following a rigorous recruitment process, the Trust are delighted to confirm the appointment of Abi Davis as Headteacher for Oak Tree School which opens in September 2023.
Statement from Jonathon Peck, CEO (Maiden Erlegh Trust):
I am delighted to share the news that Abi has been appointed as Headteacher for Oak Tree School. We were looking for an exceptional candidate to lead this school and those of us involved in the recruitment process were highly impressed by her vision, drive, and commitment to ensuring that Oak Tree School is not just an asset to the Trust, but an asset to the communities it will serve for many years to come.
I look forward to working with her over the coming months to ensure the school opens successfully, and thereafter seeing it flourish under her leadership.
Statement from Abi Davis, newly appointed Headteacher (Oak Tree School):
It is with immense pleasure I can announce that I have been appointed as the new Headteacher of Oak Tree School in Wokingham. Having grown up here myself attending local schools, I feel an enormous sense of pride and responsibility to provide a welcoming and stimulating learning environment for our students.
Having had my entire career focused on teaching, managing and building schools for children with SEN, I am looking forward to implementing a variety of strategies to support our pupil's social communication challenges. I have, and will, work closely with therapists to ensure the children have the very best resources to become as independent as possible.
Having worked already with MET's senior leadership team and the council, it's clear that there has been an extraordinary level of care and diligence put in to opening up this school. I look forward to working with the parents, staff, governors, leadership team, MET and of course the students to make Oak Tree School an outstanding SEN provision. I am very excited to welcome our first cohort into our brand-new school and opening our doors come September.
