New Headmistress Appointment

The Governors are very pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Olga Fakatseli to the post of Headmistress, with effect from January 2018.

Dr Fakatseli joined the school in 2002 and became Deputy Head in 2011.  She has always impressed the Governors with her skills, hard work and commitment.  We firmly believe that Dr Fakatseli is the ideal person to lead the School over the coming years and look forward to working with her to ensure the continued improvement of St Sophia’s School.

Letter from the PTA

The PTA Committee would like to warmly thank all children, parents and volunteers who kindly supported the fundraising cake sale on Saturday 24th June.

The sale was a great success and the children enjoyed delicious homemade cakes and cupcakes on a glorious day which reminded us the Greek weather. We managed to collect £300 to fund prospective educational events similar to last Saturday’s music workshop which was partially funded by the PTA.

We would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a lovely and relaxing Summer!
