Miriam Fredrickson has joined Headley Park Primary School as its new headteacher.

An outstanding school in south Bristol, and part of the Malago Learning Partnership, Headley Park welcomes Miriam from the federation of Bishop Sutton and Stanton Drew Primary Schools, Chew Valley, also recently judged as outstanding.

Miriam started her teaching career after ten years in family and youth support work across Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. Her first teaching post was with Marlbrook Primary, Hereford and she moved on to Kingstone and Thruxton, in Herefordshire, becoming head of Primary Teaching and Learning as the school moved to an academy trust.

“As soon as I walked into Headley Park it felt like the place I want to be with a strong sense of community and energy. I live in south Bristol and I’m looking forward to being part of providing an excellent education for all our children. I want them to be inspired, valued, creative and have the confidence and curiosity to fulfil their ambitions.”
