Lee Frost

Headteacher

“Every day is unique. School should be fun and children should want to come to school as we all know you do your best when you are happy.  Supporting and guiding people to give children the best possible start to their lives is what attracts me to the job. Personally, not many people will know this, but I am a Manchester United fan!”
