Dear Parents and Students,
It is an honour and pleasure to be leading the Secondary School in this next phase of development for PACE British School. As the founding Head of Secondary, I will be working closely with the Secondary School teachers to ensure we install high standards as the norm, create a learning culture that promotes curiosity, collaboration, and kindness in a rich and vibrant environment. Great relationships and morals are the underpinning elements of a great school, and with the key values; integrity, tolerance, and respect at the heart of everything we do, I look forward to seeing our pupils embrace the challenges on offer with enthusiasm and passion.
From my previous experiences of leading a Middle School and a Sixth Form, I know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together. Any changes we make will be done so through consultation, to ensure they are supported by all those who they impact, on our journey towards IGCSEs, A-Levels, and university admissions.
Parents are crucial in making an important contribution to their children’s achievements at school, and I want to develop the relationship between the school and parents for everyone’s benefit. As a mother of two young children myself, I fully understand the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, and children attending physical school. I am more than happy for parents to contact me if they have any concerns about their child, or their health and safety.
The Secondary School teachers and I are here to do whatever it takes to ensure our students have the best possible learning experiences at PACE British School. I look forward to getting to know you in due course.
Mrs. Leena Atkins
Head of Secondary
