THE Queen’s School has appointed a new head of sixth form.
Head of biology Claire Dillamore will take up the role in the Q6 department with immediate effect.
She said: “I am thrilled about my appointment as head of sixth form at The Queen’s School.
“It’s a genuine privilege to work closely with such independent and vibrant young women at such a crucial and exciting time in their education and development.
“Having enjoyed my association with The Queen’s School as a parent and a member of staff for many years, I have first-hand experience of the deserved superb reputation of Q6.
“I look forward to working with our dedicated pastoral and academic teams in enabling every student to flourish and fulfil her potential, both academic and otherwise.”
Mrs Dillamore read natural sciences at Churchill College, Cambridge and worked as a research assistant in the department of clinical biochemistry in the University of Cambridge before training to become a teacher.
She is involved in local church leadership as part of local charity Equipe and will spend three weeks in Uganda on a working holiday, including work at a school attended by one of The Queen’s School’s sponsored children.
