Bury St Edmunds' South Lee School appoints new deputy head
A Bury St Edmunds school has appointed a long-serving staff member as the deputy head.
South Lee School has chosen Sarah Catchpole to take on the role, which will see her working under Ruth O'Sullivan, headmistress.
Sarah has worked at the independent preparatory school for children aged 0-13 for the last 14 years, starting as a form teacher and working her way through to the senior leadership team, where she became head of Pre-Prep and the designated safeguarding lead.
"As a school, we have been through many changes but I strongly believe that our ethos has never changed," Sarah said.
"We genuinely care about the children in our care, we are supportive when things don’t go to plan and we celebrate the children’s achievements.
"Ultimately, we want what is right for our pupils and we guide them through their education in the best way possible.
"I am extremely proud to be part of the South Lee family and look forward to seeing the school continue to grow and move forward to even greater things.”
