"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.

Sarah will be working alongside Ruth O'Sullivan, headmistress.
