New Head of Primary appointed for August 2022 onwards

Posted: January 28, 2022

The process for recruiting DC’s new Head of Primary has culminated this week. It has involved several rounds of very rigorous interviews and assessment tasks, with involvement from representatives of the senior staff, middle leadership and teaching staff, support staff, students, parents, School Council, and ESF Centre. A wide variety of candidates from a global field of applicants have taken part.

I am delighted to be able to inform you that Emma-Louise Cathrae has been appointed as Head of Primary for August 2022 onwards. Emma-Louise demonstrated throughout the process the wealth of skills, experiences, and values she possesses that align with DC and our vision. She is from the UK originally and brings experience of senior leadership in schools in Dubai, Nigeria and Qatar, including as Founding Primary Headteacher in her most recent post. She possesses an NPQH (National Professional Qualification for Headship) and is currently completing a Masters degree in Educational Leadership.

We look forward to welcoming Emma-Louise and her family to our community in a few months’ time.
