School welcomes new head

An Albrighton school has announced the arrival of a new head – the first female to hold the role in its history. Mrs Sarah Morris takes up the position at Birchfield School this school year her tenure as head of Norfolk House School in Birmingham – but it’s not the first time Sarah’s been at Birchfield, as she was once the school’s deputy head.

During her 18 years in the independent sector, Sarah has enjoyed sharing her passion for literature and foreign languages. She says, “From the warmth of its welcome to the beauty of its grounds, Birchfield School is a very special place and it is a privilege to lead the school to new successes in the coming years.”

The new head is keen to retain the traditional values at the heart of the school’s ethos and its reputation for academic excellence and tailored preparation for entrance to prestigious senior schools. If you’d like to meet Mrs Morris, the school’s open day takes place on Friday 23 November.
