Taunton School announces appointment of new Head of Pre-Prep and Nursery

Posted: 26th April 2023

Rebecca Lewis is set to join the school in September 2023. She is currently Deputy Head of a primary school in Solihull.

“I am delighted to be joining Taunton School and look forward to meeting the pupils, staff and parents,” said Rebecca. “During my time already spent at the school, I have been particularly impressed by everyone’s warmth and the priority being placed on both student wellbeing and everyone achieving their best.”

Rebecca has extensive experience of working in early years settings. Prior to her current school – Oak Cottage Primary – she worked as a teacher, curriculum and Key Stage 1 lead at a neighbouring school in Solihull.

She has also worked in two different nursery settings and served as an external moderator at Key Stage 1 for the local authority.

Rebecca takes over from outgoing Head, Louise Leah, who held the position for five years. Under Louise’s leadership, the school was shortlisted for Pre-Prep of the year in the 2021 TES school awards which recognises the most outstanding schools in the country.

Headmaster James Johnson said: “Everyone at Taunton School is very excited about Rebecca’s appointment and we are looking forward to welcoming her in September. She brings excellent experience to the role and is well placed to continue the work that Louise Leah has done to make the Pre-Prep and Nursery such a thriving and vibrant community in recent years.”
