Edgbaston High School for Girls is delighted to announce the appointment of Clare Macro to the position of Headmistress from September 2019, succeeding Dr Ruth Weeks in the 2019-20 academic year to become the 11th head teacher at Birmingham’s oldest independent school for girls.
With over eight years’ experience as Deputy Head at Tudor Hall, an all-girls independent school near Banbury, Mrs Macro joins EHS with a wealth of relevant and impressive experience in an independent school setting. Her leadership skills and years of experience of inspiring pupils in a single sex environment will be invaluable as she takes up her position at EHS.
After taking a degree in Theology at Exeter College Oxford, Mrs Macro taught at Peterborough and St Margaret’s School, Bedford Modern School and Headington School, Oxford before being appointed Senior Deputy Head at Tudor Hall School.
Her enthusiasm for education extends into her professional development in her position as Governor of Queensway Primary School, Banbury and Maidwell Hall School where she has responsibility for safeguarding.
Jeremy Payne, Chairman of the Governors of Edgbaston High School, said: “This is a very exciting appointment for Edgbaston High School. Mrs Macro will build upon the exceptional results Dr Weeks has achieved in meeting the school’s aim of providing a truly excellent, high quality, holistic education for all pupils. She brings with her a wealth of energy and enthusiasm, and her track record of success at Tudor Hall speaks for itself.”
On her appointment, Mrs Macro said: “It is a great privilege to be appointed Headmistress of Edgbaston High School and I look forward to becoming a part of this very special community.”
