Dr Fiona Miles has been appointed as the new Head of Loughborough High School. Fiona is the current Senior Deputy Head at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls and will take up her appointment at the start of the Summer Term.
The appointment follows the planned departure of Gwen Byrom, who is due to leave at Christmas to take up the role of Founding Principal at the North London Collegiate School International, Bangkok.
Fiona is an alumnus of Nottingham Girls’ High School and graduated in 1997 with Honours in English Literature from Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. Fiona was appointed as an English teacher at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls in North London, where she gained her teaching qualification and remained until her love of science took her back to university to study medicine at King’s College London, qualifying MBBS (Medicine) with Distinction in 2008. She then made the decision to return to teaching, going back to Haberdashers’ where she has progressed through a number of increasingly senior roles leading to her current post.
Fiona will bring many years’ experience in teaching at independent girls’ schools and will work closely with Deputy Head Stuart Thompson and the rest of the management team, to maintain Loughborough High School’s position as one of the most outstanding independent girls’ schools in the country.
