Staff grows

CLARE’S new Stour Valley Community School, which will be the country’s first “free school” when it opens in September, has made a further appointment to its management team.

Catherine Bank has been appointed deputy headteacher at the Cavendish Road school. She previously worked at St Clement’s High School, King’s Lynn.

Headteacher Christine Inchley said “We are delighted to have made such an excellent appointment and are looking forward to Catherine joining our team after Easter.”
