A NEW headteacher has been welcomed to the halls of a Vale village school.

Julie Wilson has joined Fladbury First School and has already set about launching new after-school clubs, including modern foreign languages, film club, arts and crafts, football and eco-warriors.

She said: “I am delighted to take up this post at Fladbury, having previously been assistant head at Bredon Hancocks First School.

“I am already thoroughly enjoying Fladbury and am spending much of my time in the classrooms working alongside the staff and children.

“They are all a super bunch with a very positive attitude to learning and I am confident that working together we will have an extremely successful school.”
