The Priory CE School
Rachel Gibb is the headteacher of The Priory CE School, a secondary school in Surrey.
Gibb assumed her post as head of The Priory CE School in September 2016, following a headteacher who had 22 years of outstanding verdicts from SIAMS under his belt.
In February 2018, under Gibb’s leadership, the school retained its status as a good provider of education following a full Ofsted inspection. However, concerned that the attainment and progress from pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds was substandard, Gibb oversaw an overhaul of the school’s approach, establishing a new leadership team.
From September 2020, Gibb will be taking up a headteacher’s post at a school on the Isles of Scilly.
In July 2020, Gibb appeared on a Leaders Council of Great Britain & Northern Ireland podcast, discussing leadership and the impact it has had on her career to date.
