Cathy Driscoll has been appointed as the permanent Headteacher to The William Hogarth School by the School’s Governing Body. Cathy was already the school’s temporary Headteacher at its successful launch as a new school in October 2001.

She has been a teacher in Hounslow for more than 12 years and joined The William Hogarth School from Green Dragon Junior School, where she was deputy head. She had no hesitation in accepting and said that she was thrilled to be offer the position and overawed by the support of parents and the local community.

She added, “The William Hogarth School has a valuable role to play in the local community and I fully intend to build on the last three months to continue working with parents to ensure that the standards at the school continue to improve.”

Announcing the appointment Andy Rooney, Chair of Governors at The William Hogarth School, said, “The governing body voted unanimously to appoint Cathy Driscoll as the Permanent Headteacher for The William Hogarth School. Cathy’s work over the past few months has helped to settle the new school following the past problems and she has a clear vision of the way forward for the school. This appointment will give the school the stability during its growth over the next 4 years and provide the high standards of teaching that local children deserve. I am sure that the local community will continue to support the school and will help it to develop into a strong community school.”

The William Hogarth School occupies the site of the former Hogarth School, which was closed after several months in special measures. The school currently takes pupils in reception classes and years one and two, and will increase in size by one year group each September until it is a full primary school.

Since the new school was opened in October 2001 there have been increasing numbers of enquiries from local parents about new places. The school currently has 65 pupils.
