The new Catholic girls’ school due to move into the former home of the London Jewish Cultural Centre has appointed a headteacher.
Laura Martin is to lead St Anthony’s School for Girls, which is set to open in September at Ivy House, in North End Road, Golders Green.
The primary school is to be the sister of Hampstead’s St Anthony’s School for Boys, in Fitzjohn’s Avenue, and will welcome girls from ages four to 11.
Miss Martin will start in April as founding headteacher of the private school, which is owned by the Alpha Plus Group.
She joins St Anthony’s from Holy Family Catholic Primary School in West Acton, where she was assistant headteacher.
Miss Martin said: “I am delighted to be appointed as headteacher of St Anthony’s School for Girls.
“It is an exciting opportunity and I am looking forward to welcoming the first intake of girls to their new school.
