My name is Lin Williams and I consider myself very fortunate to hold the position of Executive Headteacher at Sandford Primary School. I trained initially at Bristol University and worked in a Bristol primary for three years. I then travelled abroad to work in Zambia, Africa for twenty-five years, in senior management and as Principal of two all-through schools. During this period, I returned to England for one year, to complete my master’s degree at Cardiff University; I am currently a National Leader of Education. Upon my return from Africa, I became an Advanced Skills Teacher and worked at Bournville Primary School for almost five years before moving on to Winscombe Primary, also within this delightful parish.
I joined Sandford as Headteacher in January 2010 and have thoroughly enjoyed working in such a lovely school, alongside a team of high-calibre, dedicated professionals. Together, we strive to provide our children with an exciting, stimulating education through a broad, balanced and creative curriculum.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, gardening, sewing, theatre/ cinema/ musicals and walking my dog Malasha.
