Emma Anderson presented a compelling vision to us for that future and we were absolutely delighted to appoint her to be the school’s new Headteacher. She brings the perfect blend of teaching and leadership experience, knowledge of the school, Trust and community, and an unshakeable resolve to provide the best possible education for the children in her care.”
