What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2014, Michele Anderson (40s). BEd in home economics from University of the South Bank in London, but has always taught geography. Her first headship. A Londoner who previously taught at selective and non-selective schools in south London and Kent, new to Lincolnshire. ‘I was looking for a headship but was very particular about the school I wanted. As soon as I walked through the door here I knew as "the feel" was just right,’ she says. Finding her feet with plans for ‘fine tuning and funding.’ Parents are positive about the new incumbent. ‘She’s fantastic; she knows exactly what she wants and where she wants to take the school,’ said one enthusiastic mother. ‘I like her and she has integrated herself well, getting to know everyone,’ said another.
