Headteacher Recruitment Update

Dear Parents and Carers


It is with great pleasure that I can inform you that we have offered Mrs Sharon Farrell the permanent post of Headteacher at Faringdon Junior School and she has accepted!


The interview day on Monday was very intensive and involved all stakeholders, from children participating in an assembly and asking questions as members of the school council, to over 20 staff attending a presentation at the end of the day. You won’t be surprised to hear that everyone’s feedback was unanimously positive!


We have all been impressed by the skills and qualities Mrs Farrell has shown over the last few months when faced with some difficult situations. She has been with the school for a very short time but has made a huge difference and dealt so well with the building issues. We were very fortunate that Mrs Farrell was willing to step in at such short notice.


Congratulations to Mrs Farrell on the permanent appointment and thank you for all the time and energy you continue to give to Faringdon Junior School.

Thank you everyone for your continued support for the school and I know we are all excited to be part of the journey onwards and upwards at Faringdon Junior School with Mrs Farrell’s leadership.
