We caught up with Mr J. Ward to find out a little more about St. Michael’s next Head! By Ndi Iwumene

ow do you feel about your recent appointment as St Michael’s next head? I feel very honoured and privileged because I have spent a long time at the school, it’s a school that I love. It’s a big responsibility but I like challenges in my life and I hope to move the school forward. What do you think you can offer as Head that none of your predecessors have done? The most obvious thing is that I will be the first male head teacher. I suppose, most of what I want to achieve is to be more successful at all the things we are already doing. For example St Michael’s achievements in terms of its exam results, the provision of extra-curricular activities for students, and it’s standing in the Catholic community. All I want to do is enhance all of those. If there was one thing you could change about our school what would it be? I’d like to knock the school down apart from the sports hall. A lot of our buildings were designed for another era so our classrooms are small and our corridors are narrow. We do have one or two fit-for-purpose areas. However we need larger classrooms, more laboratories to create a more modern environment
