Meet Our Headteacher

Mrs Clare Ley


Mrs Clare Ley joined The Grange School in May as Head Teacher.

A message from Mrs Ley:
"I am delighted to have been appointed as the new headteacher for E- ACT The Grange and I am very
much looking forward to getting to know all our pupils, parents, carers and staff over the next couple
of weeks.
As I step into this role, I am excited for the journey ahead and deeply committed to working
alongside you to provide the best possible educational experience for our children.
Having worked in schools for 16 years and as a senior leader for over 6 years, I am passionate about
ensuring that all children receive an excellent education, that not only equips our pupils with the
necessary skills and knowledge but also inspires them, opens doors, and broadens horizons. As
Headteacher, I believe in fostering a lifelong love of learning that extends beyond the classroom,
encouraging curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking. And, as I begin the journey leading the school,
working with the dedicated staff team we aim to empower our pupils to explore their passions,
pursue their interests, and become confident, lifelong learners.

I am also dedicated to providing a nurturing and inclusive environment where every child feels
valued, supported, and inspired to reach their full potential. Together, we will celebrate their
achievements, support their growth, and guide them on their educational journey.
During my first visit to the school, I was immediately struck by the dedication of the staff team and
the incredible enthusiasm, curiosity, and welcome exhibited by the children, and it is clear that they
are at the heart of everything we do here.

As an experienced Headteacher and senior leader who has worked across a number of schools, I
know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together. As parents and
carers, you make an important contribution to your children’s achievements, and I’m excited to build
on the relationship between you and the school and lead The Grange on its exciting onward journey.
I will be holding a number of events over the summer term, including a coffee morning and meet and
greets and I look forward to meeting many of you there. These meetings will take place at a number
of different times in the hope that as many families as possible will have the opportunity to attend.
You will also see me in and around the playground and school gates before and after school, so
please do say hello.

I am very much looking forward to leading E-ACT The Grange in its next chapter and look forward to
seeing you all in the near future."
