Blaise High School

Letter from the Headteacher

Dear Parents & Carers 
It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Therese Gillespie, Chair of Governors for Blaise High School, passed away on Wednesday 29th April. 
Therese was an exceptional Chair of Governors for Blaise High School. Her ambition, tenacity and drive were essential in ensuring the success of the school. She had a diligent eye for detail and incredibly high standards, both driven by a core ambition to ensure all our students had a better chance of success. Beyond Blaise High School Therese worked tirelessly across the city of Bristol focussing particularly on school improvement and ensuring families had access to the school of their choice. We will greatly miss her and are sending our thoughts to her family and friends at this difficult time.  
However, please do not hesitate to contact the school should you like to talk anything through, pass on your thoughts or if you require support. You can use the email address  
 Yours faithfully 
 Ms K Brown Headteacher
