Dear parents,


I am writing to let you know that I will be leaving my post as Headteacher at St Nicholas at Christmas 2019. After almost 17 years I feel it is time for me to move on to a new challenge and an opportunity has arisen for me to build on the year I had as National President of the National Association of Headteachers.


In my time at St Nicholas I have always been blessed with the support of our Governing Body and had the privilege of working with outstanding staff. Together, with the support of parents and the pupils in school we have moved St Nicholas from being a small school on the periphery of Blackpool to being an outstanding school supporting the development of all schools in Blackpool.


I want to take this opportunity to thank you as parents and the hundreds of children I have worked with for supporting me over the past 17 years and I know that the school will go from strength to strength with the commitment and support of parents, staff and governors.


In the meantime and over the remaining months we will continue to strive to improve St Nicholas still further.


Thank you once again for your support for me and the school.


Yours sincerely


Mr A Mellor
