A new head teacher has joined St Mary’s RC Primary School, Langho, having spent the last five years as head at St Joseph’s RC Primary School in Hurst Green.

Mrs Elizabeth Stevens said: “I’ve had a really lovely welcome from everybody and I’m really looking forward to working with everyone throughout the coming school year.

“St Joseph’s in Hurst Green is a fantastic school – it has wonderful members of staff and pupils, but I was ready for a new challenge after spending five years there.

“I want to focus on sporting development, pupil leadership and academic excellence – the most important part of this job is the pupil development and their overall learning.”
