Nailsea School has announced who will be its new headtacher from September, replacing current incumbent Chris Wade.
Dee Heal, who is one of the deputy headteachers at the school, will takeover from September 1.
However, because she is getting married in the summer, she will be known as Mrs Elliott once in the role.
Miss Heal, who used to work at Downend School in Bristol, said: “It’s an exciting time for Nailsea School.
“I’m looking forward to taking up the new post and continuing to raise standards and expectations.”
