A new headteacher has been appointed at a Welwyn Garden City school that has scored top marks from Ofsted five times in a row.
Last week Lakeside School’s current headteacher Judith Chamberlain announced that she will be retiring this year after being at the school for 32 years.
The school’s deputy headteacher Lynnette Johnson has been appointed to take over in September.
Mrs Chamberlain expressed how there couldn’t have been a better outcome for the school in Lemsford Lane.
Lynnette started working at Lakeside in 2014 and in that time has been responsible for many of the practices and procedures that have led to the school maintaining its ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted status, according to Mrs Chamberlain.

Lynnette Johnson said: “I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to lead this fantastic school with its dedicated staff team and carry on the good work that has already been done.”
