NEW HEAD FOR WOODLANDS SCHOOL
FOLLOWING the retirement of Barbara Harding, Katharine Mansfield has taken up the post of head teacher at Woodlands School in Great Warley.
Mrs Mansfield joined the school three years ago as deputy head teacher after returning from maternity leave at her previous school in Southend. Her children now join Woodlands as pupils.
Mrs Harding commented: ‘Katharine Mansfield fitted into the Woodlands family immediately. She is highly qualified, is a family person and her children attend the school. Therefore she views the school as a head teacher but also as a parent.’
