High’s new head

Shrewsbury High School (SHS) is set to welcome a new head when the autumn term begins this September. Ms Jo Sharrock (pictured) has been appointed to take the reins at the girls’ school, moving from a deputy position at an independent school in Bristol.

SHS chief executive Cheryl Giovannoni was impressed with the vision and drive demonstrated by Ms Sharrock, saying, “Jo Sharrock relishes a challenge and is committed to teaching and working with young people and their families to help them achieve the best outcomes. She firmly believes pastoral, academic and co-curricular success go hand-in-hand and are vital for young people of all abilities, who need to feel happy, supported and cared for if they are to thrive.”

Ms Sharrock says, “From my very first visit to Shrewsbury High School, I was struck by the warmth and friendliness of the school. It will be a privilege to lead Shrewsbury High through the next stage of its development and I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone in September.”
