Akeley Wood School this week announced the appointment of its new headteacher, Jenny Clough.
Mrs Clough will take over the leadership of the school in September, following the departure of Dr Jerry Grundy, who has been headteacher for nine years.
Mrs Clough is currently headteacher of Meoncross School in Fareham, a sister school of Akeley Wood within the Cognita Schools Group.
Mrs Clough has an MA in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University and continues to share her passion for science with her students.
She is particularly interested in the development of the co-curriculum alongside the academic, and is as much at home on the touchline as in the classroom.
