Lisa Pestell – Headteacher at Framfield

Since graduating from Roehampton University, working with children has been my vocation. I have worked as a teacher and a leader in schools of varying size and locations including London, Bexhill and Hastings and across all key stages. I see every child as unique and special and I feel privileged to have shared in the learning journeys of so many children. I am excited to be leading such a special school and I want to continue to nurture the close relationship we have with the local community. My vision is that we offer a rich and exciting curriculum that excites every child, that we inspire pupils to achieve and be ‘The Best That They Can Be’ in everything they do and that we constantly engage in dialogue about learning with our pupils. Our staff are a strong team of fiercely committed people and together we will move the school forward from strength to strength.

In my free time, I enjoy nothing better than being out walking along the seafront with my husband, two grown-up children and my two dogs.
