We have a Head Teacher!

May 19, 2016
Our Head Teacher interviews last month went really well - huge thanks to all the children and teachers at Broadfields and the group of prospective Mariposa parents who came along to help. We are really pleased to say that we have been successful in recruiting our very first Head Teacher.


We hope to be able to introduce them in early Autumn, but we couldn't be more pleased or excited by the appointment. The panel all felt that they really understood the vision, ethos and values of the school, had the experience and expertise to lead the school through to opening and beyond and would be a brilliant fit with both the team and the community supporting Mariposa Primary School.

The interviews were tough - on day one we asked candidated to undertake six tasks:

  • to deliver an assembly to a group of Year 1 and 2s,
  • analyse some data,
  • observe and feed back on a lesson,
  • present to and then take questions from a group of potential Mariposa parents,
  • face a pupil panel and
  • respond to a scenario where a serious issue was raised by a member of the public.

Then on day two they faced the formal interview!

Compared to all that, starting a new school should be fairly relaxing!

Watch this space as we reveal the identity of our new Head Teacher later in the year.
