Victoria Beaney has been appointed the new head of school at Deyes High School.
Having previously held positions at schools in High Peak, Warrington and Wigan over the years, Victoria is now settling into her new surroundings and is looking forward to working with the Lydiate Learning Trust, which Deyes High School is part of.
Speaking to Educate magazine, she said: “As soon as I met the board of the trust I was really drawn to their ambition and their commitment to learning and professional learning. It just felt like this is where I could belong.”
Victoria officially started at the school on 1 September but has been working closely with her new team since the end of April, thanks to the previous head of school allowing her to get a head start.
She added: “I am both honoured and delighted to have been appointed as the new head of school and to lead it in our next exciting stage of development.”
