Gateacre School are thrilled to announce that they have appointed Mr Gareth Jones to succeed Mr Jason Roberts as headteacher. Mr Jones will take up his position from September 2019.
From Liverpool, Mr Jones spent the majority of his formative years studying at the University of Wales, Bangor where he achieved a Masters in Biochemistry before going on to study a PGCE in the same university.
His teaching career began in Stanney High School in Ellesmere Port before moving on to Wilmslow High School in Cheshire: working in both 11-18 schools with a wide range of students from a variety of backgrounds and cultures provided a fantastic foundation for his teaching career.
Much to Mr Jones’ delight, in recent years he has returned to his ‘home city’, working in Notre Dame, in Everton Valley in Liverpool. He is “both honoured and delighted to join Gateacre School, working with all colleagues to ensure that the school remains at the heart of the community and the school of choice for all parents in that community”.
Mr Jones is determined to provide an opportunity for every child to develop and flourish in an environment that is warm, welcoming and caring.
“Both students and colleagues are very proud of Gateacre School and speak highly of the provision it provides for all students who attend.”
