New head for Ditton Lodge and Kettlefields

A new head teacher has been appointed for Newmarket’s Ditton Lodge Primary School and Dullingham’s Kettlefields Primary School following the announcement that current head, Angela Finn, would be retiring in July.

The new principal will be Dr Chris Marshall, who is currently in charge of Wheatfields Primary School in St Ives. He has previously been head teacher of St Andrews primary school, Cambridge. Mrs Finn successfully led Ditton Lodge to achieve ‘outstanding’ OfSTED status in February 2011. As executive head teacher, she took over the running of both schools on a full-time basis in September 2012.
