LIFE AT SENIOR GIRLS
In September 2017 Claires Court welcomed a new Head of Senior Girls, Mrs Margaret Heywood.
Well known to the pupils and parents (many of whom she taught), Margaret is a familiar face at the school, having worked as part of the girls’ community at the College Avenue site for 33 years. She joined the school as the teacher in charge of PE in September 1984 when it was known as Maidenhead College for Girls.
