Message from Principal Joanna Bailey


Dear Students/Parents

 I am writing to let you know of an exciting change happening at Tees Valley Collaborative Trust and Prior Pursglove and Stockton Sixth Form College.

From January 2021 I will relinquish my role as Principal of the college and will continue solely in the role of Chief Executive Officer for Tees Valley Collaborative Trust.  This change will allow me to focus my energies more exclusively on growing our Trust and developing its different entities, which I am eager to do.  I will remain fully involved and committed to the success of the college and the Trust’s other entities which we expect to develop over the coming months and years.

The current Deputy Principal and Head of Centre at Prior Pursglove College, Asma Shaffi, will become the new college Principal and I am confident that she will do an excellent job in taking the college from strength to strength. 

I have been honoured to lead the college since 2013 at Stockton and 2016 at Prior Pursglove and it has been a privilege to work with such a skilled and dedicated staff. I have been inspired by the many talented students who we have supported to achieve their ambitions and dreams.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and successful 2021,

Joanna
