Linda Thomas - Acting Headteacher
Type: Staff Governor (ex-officio - Acting Headteacher)
Date of appointment: 1st September 2018
Term of office expiry: n/a
I became Acting Headteacher of Saint Mary’s Catholic Primary School in September 2018, having previously worked as Deputy Headteacher since September 2013.
For me it is such a privilege to be a teacher; to be entrusted with other people's children. There is so much enjoyment in imparting knowledge and great satisfaction in seeing progress. Coming from a committed Irish Catholic family, married to a Welshman and having been educated in England, I could be regarded as having a diverse background. My two children have previously attended Saint Mary’s. In my limited spare time, I enjoy reading, cooking and entertaining along with following the Irish rugby team.
I am passionate about Catholic education; I believe that Catholic schools should provide the highest standards of education, encourage children to follow Gospel values; and be truly inclusive in all aspects of school life.
