Come and meet the staff at our school!
We have built an enthusiastic and hugely committed team at Halterworth and appoint enthusiastic and skilled staff when the opportunity arises, to bring new ideas and opportunities for our children. We support all staff to achieve outstanding outcomes and provide rich professional development opportunities to be the best they can be in their role.
The school is led by Jo Cottrell as Headteacher. She is responsible for the overall strategic direction and success of this school. She is also the Executive Leader of our Multi Academy Trust with The University of Winchester (UWinAT). As a National Leader in Education (NLE), Jo and her team have been selected by the Department for Education to support and reach out to other schools. Jo is supported by a strong team and, following designation as a National Teaching School, the senior leadership team has been restructured as follows:
