As I will soon be stepping down as Headteacher of Lliswerry High School it was necessary to undertake a recruitment process in order to appoint our next Headteacher. This recruitment process took place over the course of the last month and was completed yesterday. It was extremely rigorous and the final stage involved members of the school’s Governing Body, staff, learners, senior Local Authority officers and the Deputy Director of the Education Advisory Service.
As a result of this process, I am extremely pleased to inform you that Miss Julia Fitzgerald has been successful in her application and will take up her new role as Headteacher from January 1st 2024. Miss Fitzgerald is already working in Lliswerry as Head of School of course and it is fantastic that we will have the continuity this brings as I hand over the Headship to her at the end of this term. This is an excellent appointment for our school, as I have no doubt whatsoever that Miss Fitzgerald will do an outstanding job on behalf of our learners, our staff and our community as a whole.
