A HEADTEACHER has paid tribute to the Henley school that she is leaving after seven years.
Karen Edwards, 47, described her time at Sacred Heart primary in Greys Hill as “the best professional years of my life”.
She leaves today (Friday) to become the headteacher of a new free school, The Heights primary in Caversham Heights, which is due to open in September.
Mrs Edwards, who lives in Binfield Heath, said: “This school has a very close-knit community of parents, staff, pupils and governors.
“It’s heart-wrenching but I know that I’m leaving a really good school with a fabulous future ahead of it and I have got a chance to build something just as special in a new place.”
