  • Friday 13 May 2022 Headteacher's Blog 13th May 2022 I’ll start this week by addressing our front page on the Plymouth Evening Herald! To say I was frustrated, disappointed, baffled even, is an understatement. As you are aware we put in a planning application for a fence around the school as we are probably one of the only schools in the south west that is a completely open site. Unfortunately, in this day and age, we cannot have the general public walking through school and despite me having little interest in the fence and much preferring to focus my time on improving the school, it was clear there was a need to erect one. The Evening Herald have tried to drag up some events that may or may not have happened from many years ago to try and create a story. I hope I made my view on this clear during a Radio Devon interview this morning. I now want to focus on my main priority, improving our student’s life chances in a safe environment.

  • Friday 11 March 2022 Headteacher's Blog 11th March 2022 Some great news to start my blog this week, we managed to raise a staggering £1884.34 last Friday for the humanitarian effort to support the displaced refugees from Ukraine. This was by no means a political statement, but one of compassion for those who have been forced to flee their homes. It’s times like these that I am particularly proud to be Headteacher at Lipson and would like to thank the students, parents and staff for their support in this worthwhile cause.

  • Friday 28 January 2022 Headteacher's Blog 28th January 2022 I would like to start this week by thanking the students, staff and wider community for the support and respect shown since the sad news of the passing of Stevie Mitchell. We have received some truly moving messages of condolence which we are in the process of combining into a book for Stevie’s family to keep. The funeral is set to take place next Thursday, with more detail to follow.
  • Friday 21 January 2022 Headteacher's Blog 21st January 2022 Unfortunately, there is only one place to start this week and that is to pay tribute to Science teacher Stevie Mitchell who sadly passed away on Monday. Stevie was a popular and well-respected colleague who will be sadly missed by thosewho worked with him and he had a big impact on many of the students that he taught. It was difficult having to communicate the news with staff and students at the start of the week but the response from everyone has been quite overwhelming. It is at times like this that we see what a very special place Lipson is and I really can'tthank the whole school community enough for the way that they have responded.

  • Friday 10 December 2021 Headteacher's Blog 10th December 2021 It has been a relief to get back to some form of normality this week as a number of staff and students returned to school after isolating due to Covid. Being fully staffed and fighting fit has certainly made managing the school much easier!
  • Friday 3 December 2021 Headteacher's Blog 3rd December 2021 It has been one of those weeks that epitomises the many highs and occasional lows of life as a headteacher. We started the week with the release of our Ofsted report and the positive nature of the report meant that we received dozens of messages of congratulations from parents, colleagues and the wider educational community. As nice as it is to get such accolades, it is extremelyimportant to rememberthat the praise really needs to go to our students and staff for what they have achieved. It is also important that we all realise that we still have work to do here if Lipson is to become the great school again that we all believe it can become.
  • Friday 26 November 2021 Headteacher's Blog 26th November 2021 As many of you will have seen from the video message I put out yesterday, Covid is rearing its ugly head again. As a result of a rising number of positive cases amongst our student and staff bodies we have had to reintroduce a number of measures across the school. From today we are ensuring:-
