Trio of appointments at ASFA

The Academy of St Francis of Assisi (ASFA) has welcomed three new starters to the school team.

Mark Bonnesen has joined the senior leadership team as assistant headteacher. Mark will lead the continuing development of the maths department and support teaching and learning across the school. He comes from Alsop High School where he was the head of maths.

Miles Rimmer-Tagoe is the new chaplain at ASFA and will be working to support the emotional and spiritual wellbeing of students and staff. Miles has a wealth of experience to support the important work underway around the personal development of students.

After May half term, Gus Byrne became a permanent head of year. He is currently in a supply role at the school and is looking forward to becoming a permanent member of staff.

He comments: “I’m excited to take up my role as head of year. Working here already on a supply basis has given me great insight into the school community and I’ve got to know many of the wonderful students I will be supporting after half term.”

Ms Jo Leech, headteacher of The Academy of St Francis of Assisi, said: “I am very pleased to welcome Mark, Miles and Gus to the team. They will make great additions to all aspects of the academy as we continue to work towards our core mission of ensuring our students flourish and thrive.”
