This article is old - Published: Monday, Mar 14th, 2016

Ysgol Glan Clwyd, St Asaph has announced the appointment of the current deputy headteacher, Bethan Cartwright as the new headteacher at the school. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Originally from Llansannan, Bethan is an ex-pupil of the school. She then attended Aberystwyth University where she graduated in Mathematics and earned her post graduate teaching qualification. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Bethan started her career at Ysgol Syr Thomas Jones, Amlwch before moving to Ysgol Morgan Llwyd (Wrexham) and then Ysgol Tryfan (Bangor) where she was head of the maths department. She later had a slight change of career, becoming a mathematical advisor for Cynnal, the support service for schools in Gwynedd and Anglesey. She later returned to teaching in her role as deputy headteacher of Ysgol y Creuddyn (Penrhyn Bay) and then deputy head at Ysgol Glan Clwyd. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Although the life of a deputy headteacher is busy, music is one of Bethan’s main interest. She plays the piano and harp and also enjoys walking along rural routes. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Her priority is to ensure an education and teaching of the highest quality. She wants everyone to aim for excellence through using both languages. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Bethan will take up the post in September 2016. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
