Mrs Mortimer

We are now delighted to announce that Mrs Helen Mortimer will be the new Head of the Preparatory Department from January 2018.

Mrs Mortimer is currently Deputy Head of the Junior School at The Manchester Grammar School (MGS) and has worked at the school since 2008. She was first promoted to Assistant Head of Juniors in 2011 and then to Deputy Head in 2015. She has a degree in Psychology from the University of Sheffield.

Mrs Hewitt, Head Mistress, commented: "We were determined to find just the right candidate for our forward-thinking school and are excited to be welcoming Mrs Mortimer to the team.

"She is committed to providing an education centred around each individual child and creating an environment in which pupils can be happy, challenged and fulfilled. The selection panel felt this brilliantly chimed with MHSG’s own vision and are confident that she will build on the excellent work that is already being undertaken in our Preparatory Department."
