Following a recruitment process, Governors are pleased to confirm that the new Principal of Ben Madigan is Mr Matthew Skimin. Mr Skimin is currently a P6 teacher and member of the Senior Leadership Team in Andrews Memorial Primary School, Comber. In addition to his teaching qualifications, he holds a M.Ed in Pastoral Care and has led in the curriculum areas of the World Around Us and Physical Education. We look forward to welcoming Mr Skimin to the staff of Ben Madigan from the beginning of the next academic year and wish him every success in this role.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Jones for fulfilling the role of Acting Principal since August 2018. She has introduced effective systems for the day to day management of the school alongside teaching the Prep 3 class and Ben Madigan has benefited greatly from her expertise as a SEN co-ordinator and classroom practitioner. Mrs Jones will remain in post until the end of this academic year.
Warden, Belfast Royal Academy
