The appointment of Mr Damien Keogh as the next Principal of The Axholme Academy

On behalf of the Governing Board I am delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Damien Keogh as the next Principal of The Axholme Academy.  Mr Keogh will take up the Principal position from 01 September 2019 following the retirement of our well respected and long-standing Principal, Joe Sellars.

Mr Keogh’s appointment follows an extensive two-day assessment centre in March.  He joins us with five years’ experience as a Head Teacher leading the St Peter and St Paul Catholic Voluntary Academy in Lincoln, and with twenty-two years’ experience in education.

We look forward to welcoming Mr Keogh to our Academy.

Dawn Da Costa, Chair of Governors

Mr Keogh says, “I am proud to have been appointed as the new Principal of The Axholme Academy.  The Academy is a wonderful community with strong values and I am looking forward to getting to know and working closely with Mr Sellars, staff and Governors over the coming months so I am fully prepared for September 2019.  I am also looking forward to getting to know students and parents and will make myself available in September to meet as many parents as possible.  I wish Mr Sellars and all at The Axholme Academy every success for the rest of this academic year.”
