Anna Willcox Appointed Interim Principal at The Manor CE Primary School

We are very happy to announce that Anna Willcox has been appointed as Interim Principal at The Manor CE Primary School in Melksham, starting in September.

The experienced Mrs Willcox will lead the school until January, when a permanent principal will be appointed.

Anna Willcox was previously principal at Forest & Sandridge Primary School, also in Melksham, where she spent 15 successful years in the role. While at the school, Forest & Sandridge increased their Ofsted rating from Satisfactory to Good, while growing the school intake significantly from 226 to 462 total pupils.

Since leaving Forest & Sandridge, Mrs Willcox has held a senior school improvement position at The White Horse Federation, and has spent two successful periods as Interim Principal at Moredon Primary School and Bowerhill Primary School.

Simon Cowley, Director of Primary Schools at The White Horse Federation, discussed the appointment: “Anna has an exceptional track record of school improvement, firstly during her 15 years at Forest & Sandridge and more recently as an interim principal.”

“She is very familiar with the local community in Melksham, and stands in good stead to continue improvement at The Manor during this transitional period.”
