New head teacher for Trinity School

16 October 2015

​Kathryn McMahon has been appointed the next head teacher of Trinity Primary School.

Mrs McMahon, who is currently the deputy head at St Luke’s School, will take up the post in January 2016. She succeeds Nichola Turner who will be moving to Grouville in the new year.

Jersey-born Mrs McMahon, a former Beaulieu student, completed her teacher training at King Alfred’s College before taking up her first teaching post in the Island in September 1995 at La Moye School. She subsequently moved to St Mary’s School and Plat Douet, where she became Key Stage 1 manager. In September 2011 she moved to St Luke’s primary school, where she became deputy head.

She said “I am absolutely delighted to be appointed as the new head teacher of Trinity School. I am committed to ensuring that every child is at the heart of what we do. I look forward to getting to know the Trinity community, building on its past successes, leading the school through a new curriculum, new assessment procedures and a building project.

“I’ve been fortunate to work alongside Caryn Stone, an inspirational head teacher who has supported me throughout my four years at St Luke’s.”

Assistant Director and head of Standards and Achievement, Seán O’Regan, said “We have invested in prospective primary heads from within the local teaching workforce and it is bearing fruit. Mrs McMahon was successful against a field of high-calibre candidates. This is excellent news for Trinity School and also bodes well for future appointments.”

Education, Sport and Culture Minister Deputy Rod Bryans added “Congratulations to Mrs McMahon. I wish her luck with her new challenge and am extremely pleased that we are finding high-quality primary head teachers from within our own ranks.”
