Mrs Helen Bradley-Wyatt has been appointed as the Headteacher of Hollingbourne County Primary School as from September in succession to Mr Ralph Baldock who retires in July after 28 years in charge at Hollingbourne during which time the school roll has almost doubled. Mrs Bradley-Wyatt is joining Hollingbourne from Greenfields Community Primary School in Maidstone.
Mrs Helen Bradley-Wyatt introduces herself to Hollingbourne as follows:-
Born and raised in the New Forest by my parents who were both teachers, I moved to Kent to read Early Childhood Studies and Social Science at University. I studied for three years and gained a First Class honours.
Following this, I completed my PGCE which resulted in a teaching qualification. I started my teaching career in 2002, in a village primary school which I thoroughly enjoyed. I then became an Advisory Teacher for Early Years. Keen to further develop my career and experience I joined a challenging school, successfully leading the Early Years department.
I then took up the challenge of Assistant Head at Greenfields and after staffing restructures became the Deputy Head. I have been here now for 5 years. During my time at Greenfields I have completed my NPQSL* and am about to finish my NPQH**. I am delighted to be taking up the post of Headteacher at Hollingbourne. I am looking forward to working with the children, families, governors, staff and community to make Hollingbourne Primary the best it can be.
