A new face has taken over the helm of a Downham primary school.
Pupils, parents and staff at Hillcrest Primary School have welcomed new headteacher, Matthew Try.
He has taken over the Bexwell Road school following the retirement of Linda Howling.
Mr Try said he was looking forward to working on the school’s next chapter.
He said, “I am delighted to have become Hillcrest’s new headteacher. I am looking forward to building on Mrs Howling’s excellent work, and to taking the school forward into its next phase”.
He has joined the school with significant experience in both teaching and management, most recently as headteacher of Hatton Park Primary School in Cambridgeshire.
Mr Try is married with two sons. He is a keen athlete, and is an active member of Thetford Athletics Club.
