Special school Mary Elliot Academy in Bloxwich has announced Rebecca Davies will step into the role.

The landmark appointment signals the next step in a new chapter for the academy, which began when it joined Thrive Education Partnership in 2023.

Rebecca, who joined Mary Elliot Academy over a decade ago, has taken on various roles at the school before being appointed headteacher.

It follows her tenure as joint leader with Rachael Bowen immediately after the school became an academy.
