Bishop of Rochester Academy (Updated)

The Principal of Bishop of Rochester Academy has been suspended today for unspecified reasons. A statement  from the three Sponsors: Rochester Diocese, Canterbury Christ Church University and Medway Council states: "The strategic direction and performance of Bishop of Rochester Academy is of the utmost importance to the academy sponsors and Board of Governors....


Charged with ensuring the best possible educational outcomes for students, the sponsors have been constantly reviewing the overall performance of the academy. Determined to act in the best interests of the academy and its students, the decision has been taken to suspend the principal, Christopher Sweetman, with immediate effect. As an interim measure, Mrs Leonie Allen and Mr John McMaster have been appointed as joint acting principals. The sponsors remain committed to working in partnership with parents to ensure students are making maximum progress. The quality of learning and behaviour of students at the academy is extremely important and remains our key priority. The sponsors want to reassure parents that steps are being taken to bring about rapid and significant improvement at the school."
