Sophie McGeoch has been Head of Meadlands Primary in Ham since 2014. Her leadership underpins all that the school does, and is the central reason behind the school’s academic success. Sophie has built and developed a team of school leaders who all share her vision of ‘work hard and be kind’, and they have transformed the school into one that the local community proudly treasures.

In an environment filled with disco balls, murals, chicken coops, zip wires, wilderness areas and a Roald Dahl shed, children are encouraged to dream big. Sophie’s dedication to her pupils ensures that there are a range of measures to protect their emotional wellbeing at every stage of their school lives.
