At Great Cornard Upper School in Great Cornard, near Sudbury, Wayne Lloyd has been named as Mike Foley’s successor.

Yorkshire-born Mr Lloyd, who has been vice principal at the “outstanding”-rated Castle Manor Business and Enterprise College, takes over the reins next January.

Mr Lloyd said: “I am honoured and humbled at the prospect of becoming the next headteacher of such a wonderful school. I must first pay tribute to Mike Foley for the excellent job that he has done at Great Cornard.

“I would like to assure the students of the school, their parents and the whole community that the school will retain the values and principles that he has established.

“It will continue to be a school where students are happy, succeed in their learning and achieve high standards in all aspects of their school life.”

Meanwhile, headteacher at Riverside Middle School in Mildenhall, Caroline Yates, has announced her decision to retire – a year before it is merged to create 11-18 Mildenhall Technology College.

A statement from the school’s chairman of governors, Michael Croughton, said: “Naturally, Miss Yates was very saddened by the decision to close the school but has worked hard to maintain high standards and a good learning environment during the period of transition.”

Susan Byles, head at Mildenhall Technology College, will work as executive head at Riverwalk until it is closed next year.
