Our Federation is Growing

Monday 29th November

Dear Parents

Our Federation is growing. I am so excited to let you know that Friars Foundation Primary School will be joining The Bridges Federation in January 2022. Friars is a one-form entry school located in SE1 near Blackfriars Road.

Senior staff and Governors have been working together this term to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible. We are sure this partnership will bring further exciting opportunities for all our staff and pupils.

You will see some changes in our Leadership Team from January 2022:

Zohra Benotmane, currently Co-Head of School at Snowsfields, will be joining Friars as their Co-Head of School with Jo Wratten who is currently based at Friars.

Maureen Chance will be full time at Snowsfields, joining Jo Cranmer as Co-Head of School there.

Laura Neuveglise and Helen Viggiani will continue at Tower Bridge as Co-Heads of School.

Sarah Manley will continue as Headteacher at Robert Browning, with Emma Flanagan and Anna Mulhern as Deputy Heads.

Many of you will remember when Snowsfields first joined with Tower Bridge in February 2014 and then with Robert Browning in September 2018. All three schools currently in our Federation have continued to thrive and improve.

If you have any questions please speak to any member of the Leadership Team who are on the gate every day or if you would like to speak to me please call the school office and I will call you back as soon as I can.

Kind regards

Kate Wooder

Executive Head
