TANNERY Drift School in Royston has appointed a new head teacher.
Anna Greetham joined the school on Monday to take over from Andrew Nicholls, who retired in March.
Anna has been teaching for the past nine years and decided to move to a school in Hertfordshire because it's known as a dynamic and forward thinking county.
She said she aims to build on existing strengths, which include good results, good teaching, positive attitudes to all aspects of school life and music.
"I want to develop other areas in the school and from September we will have smaller class sizes with the average class consisting of 22 pupils," she said.
"We want to give pupils a rich curriculum," she said.
