New Headteacher Appointment at Cockermouth School

Following a robust interview process involving a strong field of candidates, I am pleased to announce that Dr Rob Petrie has been appointed to the post of Headteacher at Cockermouth School. Dr Petrie’s appointment takes effect from 29 January 2015.

Dr Petrie has made a great impression in his leadership role since his return to Cockermouth School as Deputy Headteacher in 2012. The Governing Body are confident that his management experience and leadership style will enable the school to continue to progress as it begins a new chapter, thirty years into its existence. The values and vision that Dr Petrie brings to the role will give the necessary confidence to students, parents and staff that under his leadership our students will be given the opportunity, at all levels of ability, to flourish and achieve their potential.

Dr Petrie said ‘I am delighted to accept the position of Headteacher at Cockermouth School and look forward to working closely with the Governing Body to lead the school through its next phase towards becoming outstanding. Close collaboration between Governors, parents, students, staff and the community will be vital in enabling us to make further progress to ensure that every student achieves success at Cockermouth School. This is an exciting time for the school as we look to the future with renewed confidence and clarity.’
