Geraint Edwards

Headteacher & Governor

I started my teaching career in 1991 at Langleybury School, Watford, as a History teacher. This was followed by a move to Stratton Upper School in Biggleswade as Head of History. In 2004 I took up a post as Assistant Headteacher at Monk’s Walk School in Welwyn Garden City and was promoted to Deputy Headteacher and later spent a term as Acting Headteacher. In April 2012, I was seconded as Acting Headteacher to Marriotts School in Stevenage. In September 2013 I became the Headteacher of The Priory School.

I have been involved in a number of SEND working streams with the local authority and sit on the SEND Strategic Leadership group and High Needs subcommittee. The Priory remains a maintained school and I am in my second term on Schools Forum for the secondary maintained sector. In July 2022 I stepped down as Chair of the Hertfordshire Association of Secondary Schools after three years in the post.
