Pupils at St Paul’s Catholic School are soon to wave goodbye to one long-serving member of staff and welcome another to a new role.

Headteacher Michael Manley will retire after 22 years at the school at the end of August and one of his colleagues will lead the school into the new academic year.

Jo-Anne Hoarty, who has held various roles at St Paul’s over the last 20 years, will take up the post of headteacher from September 1.

Jo-Anne said: “I am delighted that I have been given the opportunity to serve the community of St Paul’s as headteacher and I’m excited that I will be leading the school through the next stage of its journey.”
