Staff Changes

We’d like to welcome Mr Newey as a permanent member of staff, even though it feels as though he’s always been part of our Brynmill Family.

Mrs Nicholas will be returning to us after her year on leadership secondment, and Mr Jenkins will be leaving us as his leadership secondment year finishes. Whilst we will be very sad to see Mr Jenkins leave, we are delighted to see Mrs Nicholas return.

We also say goodbye to Miss Brown, and we wish her all the best in her future, it has been lovely having her here with us for the last year.
