Appointment of a new Headteacher for
After a thorough and competitive interview process, the Governors of St Barnabas School are delighted to announce the appointment of Mrs Beccy Harris as our new Headteacher from September 2023, subject to safeguarding checks. Beccy will come to us from Marsh Baldon Church of England Primary School where she has been Headteacher since 2017. With over 30 years’ experience of teaching in a variety of schools in London and Oxford, we are very fortunate in securing Beccy to lead our school into its next phase. Beccy is particularly keen that children are respected as unique individuals and that they are encouraged to know how they can each make a difference in the world. Beccy is known for her patience, kindness, good humour and her high standards in education. At her interview, everyone on the appointment panel was impressed by her perceptiveness, honesty and enthusiasm for the tough but rewarding job ahead of her.
On being offered the appointment, Beccy said:
‘I am delighted to have been appointed as Headteacher to St. Barnabas Primary School. It will be an honour and privilege to serve this unique community. I am looking forward to meeting everyone and am very excited to get started.’
Between now and September the school continues to be led by our wonderful Interim Headteacher, Scott Lewis, who has done a brilliant job since his arrival last summer. His energy and enthusiasm for our children and community is hugely appreciated and much needed. We are indebted to him.
