Headteacher of Girls for a Day
Meet Miss Catton, Head Teacher of Claires Court Girls for the day…
It certainly was an action packed day for the Year 7 pupil who took over as Headteacher for the day; attending assembly, meeting and greeting new starters for September and their parents, reviewing the Summer Production and awarding medals at the Junior Swimming Gala.
A Headteacher's role includes much more than the niceties, so she attended meetings with her PA, Mrs Phipps, with whom she composed letters, proof read programmes and authorised orders, and she also had a meeting with the Marketing Department where she reviewed future marketing plans and school social media, including tweeting on behalf of the Senior Girls. Miss Catton also checked the educational provision on offer that day, with drop in observations and chats with her staff. At points the tasks may have seem daunting, but Holly took on every challenge and did a sterling job!
