New Head of Junior School
Marie-Clare Gilfedder-Bonnar joins Colfe’s as new Head of Junior School
Marie-Clare Gilfedder-Bonnar joins Colfe’s after ten years at Blackheath High Junior School, latterly as Deputy Head. Marie-Clare has taught in co-education and single-sex schools in London, Amsterdam and Renfrewshire, in both the state and independent sector.
“I am local to the school and have been aware of Colfe’s reputation for outstanding pastoral care and academic excellence for a long time – the ethos of the school was a driving factor for me joining. I’m delighted to be Head of Junior School and I can’t wait to get know the pupils, parents and staff over this first term.”
Richard Russell, Headmaster said “We were delighted to appoint Marie-Clare from a very strong field of applicants last year. The governors and I are confident that she will get to know pupils and parents quickly and build further on the excellent progress made in the Junior School in recent years. I look forward very much to working with her in the years ahead.”
