Crackley Hall Appoints New Academic Assistant Head

Pupils and staff at Crackley Hall will be welcoming a new member to the school’s leadership team after October half term. Mrs Jayne Geran, an experienced teacher and senior leader, has been appointed Assistant Head of Academic and Key Stage 2 for the Kenilworth independent junior school.

Mrs Geran has worked at schools across Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire, most recently as an Assistant Head at St Matthew’s Bloxam CE Primary in Rugby. She brings a wealth of experience to her new role having played a significant part in the development of a wide range of schools.

As a member of the senior management team at Crackley Hall, she will work closely with the Headmaster and colleagues to ensure that pupils achieve to the very best of their abilities.

Explaining her approach to learning, Jayne Geran comments, “I believe that a happy school is a successful school, where a ‘can-do’ culture is nurtured both within the classroom and across the school and where praise and encouragement prevail, so self-esteem is high. I am delighted that I have been given this opportunity to lead on Academic and Key Stage 2 at Crackley Hall. I look forward to working with all of the parents and staff, but my main aim will be to light up a hunger for learning amongst the pupils.

Rob Duigan, Headmaster at Crackley Hall, comments, “We are delighted that Jayne has accepted the position of Assistant Head, Academic and Key Stage 2. When interviewing her for the role I was impressed with how her passion for the curriculum was balanced with her philosophy that achievement sits alongside shared values, an ethos which is echoed here at Crackley. She will be a key figure in the future of our teaching provision at Crackley Hall and the education of the children here. I wish her well in her new role.”
