What says..

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2014, Caroline Andrews BEd from Sheffield Hallam (early 40s). Taught at Chaucer Junior from 1996-2000, then at Wix Primary where she became ICT leader, followed by deputy then co-head. Established the first state French/English bilingual school along with French Lycée. Made head here in 2014. Hails from Nottingham. Husband works in TV. Has a young son at another school as she feels ‘it wouldn’t be fair for him to come here, with me as head.’ Most of her spare time is spent socialising with family and friends. Travels to far-flung destinations as often as possible. Keen gardener and enjoys cooking, which she finds therapeutic. Parents are big fans. ‘Down-to-earth,’ according to one. ‘She’s brought a new lease of life to the school,’ said another. Welcoming and friendly.
