Jonathan Walters appointed as Headteacher for Tweeddale

Jonathan will take up his post at Tweeddale Primary School in Carshalton on 1st September 2024.

Jonathan brings a wealth of experience to his role as Headteacher, with a proven track record of leadership in schools across Wandsworth and Surrey. He helped launch a school in Germany and his current position is a secondment by his trust to support a school on their improvement journey.

During his time on secondment, Ofsted recognised that he, "has worked resolutely to improve the quality of education... and has galvanised team spirit. Staff feel rejuvenated and valued. There is a strong sense of ambition for what can be achieved." Additionally, he boasts a background in diplomacy, having started his career with the Foreign Office. He speaks five languages and has visited over 40 countries.

Sam Hunter, Assistant Director of Primary Education, says: “I am delighted that we are going to be welcoming Jonathan to the school community at Tweeddale and am excited by the ideas, enthusiasm and pride he has for the school already.”
