The new headteacher of an Ilford independent school has said she wants “evolution, not revolution”.
Androulla Nicholas, 56, started as head of Park School for Girls, in Park Avenue, this month.
The 56-year-old, formerly a senior teacher at King Alfred School in North London, told the Recorder she was “excited” to start.
“When I heard about the school, and the vacancy, I thought it could be an interesting next step in my career,” she said.
“I have got a grown up daughter, and it feels a bit like coming home.
“My school was a very small school like this one.
“What I found really refreshing was when I met the staff and children it was like one big family.
“Supporting the children to be the best they can be.”
Mrs Nicholas explained she particularly enjoyed teaching the youngest classes, something she has never done before.
“I want to get to know every child in the school,” she explained.
