A headteacher in Bilsborrow is enjoying his new role and has big plans for his new school.
Blackpool-born Liam Reynolds has taken up the reins at John Cross School which is his first headship.
I am keen to strengthen the outdoor curriculum and the development of a new Early Years outdoor area will begin this monthNew headteacher
Liam started his teaching career after graduating in 1999 from Edge Hill University and has spent time all over the world, travelling and living in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
He enjoys most sports and outdoor activities with a lifelong interest in Blackpool Football Club. Mr Reynolds is also musically-minded and has been part of several performing bands as a guitarist across the Preston area.
He said: “I am very excited about all the challenges and opportunities that await me at this excellent school. I am particularly keen to build on the obvious good links we already enjoy with the community, the church, Myerscough College and others. The Governors and staff are most supportive. One priority is to build up the numbers of pupils by maintaining and indeed improving on the school’s results and reputation for preparing our children for further education, adulthood and good citizenship. I am keen to strengthen the outdoor curriculum and the development of a new Early Years outdoor area will begin this month.
“I am especially looking forward to meeting families and visitors at our Open Day, and showing off the super quality of provision John Cross and the Cock Robin nursery have to offer.”
