Message from the Principal/CEO

Linda HalbertI am delighted to have the opportunity to be the CEO of Teesside Learning Trust and Principal at Thornaby Academy, giving me the opportunity to work with such inspirational staff and students.

My name is Linda Halbert and I have been the Principal at schools in North Tyneside and Redcar and Cleveland for the last fifteen years. I bring experience and a proven track record of success to Thornaby, as well as the highest expectations of staff and students and a strong belief that this school has the power, and the responsibility, to improve the future life chances of all of our students.

I am clear that our core purpose at Thornaby Academy is to have the highest ambitions and aspirations for our staff and students, to ensure that we deliver quality first teaching and effective support to enable our students to achieve the highest outcomes.

Our ambition is for Thornaby Academy to be an outstanding school. Through working in partnership with parents and the local and wider community we will achieve this.  This is important to us as it will ensure that everything we do is outstanding for our students.  We are on a journey towards that goal at Thornaby Academy.  There is lots of very good and outstanding practice within Thornaby; we will use this as the foundations to build on.

Mrs Linda Halbert
