Brabyns Preparatory School has appointed Cath Carrasco as its new headteacher.
The school in Marple, Cheshire is a co-educational independent day school for children aged two to 11, with nursery, infant and junior departments. The school is part of Bellevue Education.
Carrasco has spent more than 24 years working in education and was formerly deputy headteacher at Forest Park Preparatory School in Sale.
Carrasco obtained a degree in primary education with QTS at Liverpool John Moores University, before obtaining her NPQSL in 2011 and her NPQH with Alliance of Leading Learning in 2022. During her 16 years at Forest Park, Carrasco led sport, computing and the mentoring of trainee teachers. Before that, she held teaching posts in a range of state schools across Greater Manchester, St Helen’s and Derbyshire.
Carrasco said, “I feel extremely honoured and privileged to have been chosen to continue to develop this fabulous school onto the next stage of its journey. Brabyns is a special school to be a part of. We have a hugely committed and talented staff team.”
Bellevue education director David Williams commented: “Cath’s appointment comes at an exciting time for Brabyns. We are confident Cath will provide visible and courageous leadership whilst preserving the Brabyns ethos and care for the individual that makes it such a unique school.”
