Dear parent/carer

North Kesteven Academy is delighted to announce the appointment of Mrs Joanne Tunnicliffe as Headteacher at North Kesteven Academy with effect from 1st September 2018.

A qualified languages teacher, Jo has been at NK since 2007 and has held a range of leadership posts. Many of you will know her most recently as our Deputy Headteacher.

Jo has completed the National Qualification for Headteachers and her breadth of experience means that she is the right person to lead us to even greater success in the future. The next phase of our development is a very exciting time and we wish Jo every success in her new role.

I would like to thank Neil Wilkinson-McKie for the contribution he has made to the Academy as Headteacher over the last two years and wish him every success for the future.  Neil has asked me to pass on the following message: “I would like to thank all pupils and staff for their hard work during my time as Headteacher and to wish the Academy all the very best for the future.”

Jo is looking forward to meeting more of you in the future and sharing her vision for the next chapter of the Academy’s development.

May I wish you all a restful summer.

Yours sincerely


M A Taylor

Chair of Governing Body
