A SALISBURY school has revealed a new headteacher who will take over in January.
Jenny Price will take the helm at the Godolphin School next month from current head, Emma Hattersley, who is moving to London to take on a new role.
The appointment was announced by Godolphin’s Governing Board, who said they were ‘delighted’.
Chair of Governors, Sir Nick Pope, said: “Jenny offers passion, energy, enthusiasm, spirit and drive. She also embodies those characteristics that make Godolphin such a unique school.
“She has the total support of the Governors and Senior Management Team and, with her experience, is uniquely well placed to lead the School at the executive level from Day One.”
Having studied Music at Durham University, Mrs Price gained a PGCE from Cambridge and took up her first teaching post at Bryanston School, where she taught Music and was Housemistress of Greenleaves House.
In 2012, she moved to Westonbirt School as deputy head pastoral. Jenny said she was looking forward to leading the school through an exciting time in the coming years.
“I am thrilled to have been appointed as the next head of Godolphin,” she said.
“I am truly committed to the school and believe firmly in its values and purpose and look forward to steering the school through to its 300th anniversary in 2026 and to shaping the next chapter in Godolphin’s history.”
Mrs Hattersley stands down after nine years at the helm.
