Miss Iona Carmody MSc has been appointed to the position of Head of the Lower School, with effect from September 1st 2018.
Miss Carmody is currently Head of the Pre-Preparatory division of The Prebendal School in West Sussex and is a caring and dynamic school leader with a wealth of experience across a range of excellent schools both in the UK and internationally.
She has a keen interest in travel, sport and outdoor education, having launched an exciting Beach School initiative at her current school.
Miss Carmody said: “The Lower School is a shining example of excellent education - a challenging curriculum delivered within a nurturing environment - and I am delighted to have been appointed as its new head from September. I strongly believe that encouraging children to develop positive attitudes to their learning is fundamental for their future success and I look forward to getting to know all of the pupils, parents and staff in order that we may work together to build on Mrs Cookson’s legacy.”
Mrs Keville, Mrs Wallace-Woodroffe and the Senior Leadership Teams are all very much looking forward to working closely with Miss Carmody to lead Queen’s in this next exciting chapter and wish Mrs Cookson well as she takes up her new role as Principal of the Infant and Junior Division of King’s, Macclesfield.
