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 not busy, our two children Anna and Edward.

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

Kind regards,

Sarah Shakles
