Shelley Dixon is the new head teacher at The Dolphin School in Bristol.

She has taken up her post in time for the primary school's move into its new purpose-built premises in Montpelier.

The Dolphin School, which opened in 2012 and is rated good by Ofsted, is one of five primaries and a secondary in the Bristol-based CGS Trust.

Miss Dixon was deputy head and acting head at Sea Mills Primary in Bristol and previously worked at Henleaze Infant School in the city as well as for an international charity in Guyana.

She said: “I am thrilled to be leading The Dolphin School on the next stage of its journey, driving forward improvements and establishing it at the heart of its diverse, inner-city community.

“Working with families and the community is really important to me.

“CGST is a very supportive trust which offers opportunities for collaborative working with similar schools and very different schools. We can learn a lot from each other.”

Paula Shore, CGST executive principal for primaries, said: “CGST is forward thinking and inclusive, wanting to recruit the very best people who will continue to afford the very best opportunities to the school communities. Shelley is passionately committed to the children and the wider school and has an excellent track record.”
