A COLWYN Bay school has appointed a new head of pastoral care

Alison Hind, who was head of Rydal Penrhos’ preparatory school and now takes on the new role for both the prep and senior schools.

She will oversee all pastoral care within the school from kindergarten to year 13 including responsibility for the induction of new pupils, additional learning needs and medical provision.

Mrs Hind, said: “I am excited to be taking on these roles, which I consider to be key to the overall success of the school.

“Ensuring our children are safe is paramount and this is something we take great pride in, which in-turn enables our pupils to thrive both academically and during their extra curricular activities.

“I am obviously no stranger to a large portion of the incoming year seven group, and I look forward to working with them to aid with their transition to senior school life.”
