Dear Parents and Visitors,

My name is Sarah Shakles and I am fortunate enough to be the Headteacher at Crabbs Cross Academy.

I started at Crabbs Cross in September 2015 and very quickly settled to being at the helm of such a super school.  

The children are at the centre of all we do and everyone in our team is determined to make Crabbs Cross a fabulous learning environment for children and adults alike.

When I am not being a headteacher, I love to ride horses, visit the theatre and escape into a good book. I enjoy going for long walks with my family, my husband Ian and when they are home from university, our two children Anna and Edward. I also enjoy exploring on our motorbike.

Come along and visit us, we would love to share our school with you,

Kind regards,

Sarah Shakles
