Whipton Federation Staffing Structure

All staff at Whipton Barton Federation work on behalf of children. We are two schools working as one. If you would like to contact staff, they are usually available before and after school for a quick chat. If you need more time, they will be more than happy to make an appointment to see you at a mutually convenient time.

You can contact the schools directly by telephone or email the Executive Head and the Deputy Heads at the email addresses below:

Gary Read: gread@whiptonbarton.org
