New head appointed by Loughborough High School

Dr Fiona Miles will take up the role upon her departure from Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls

Dr Fiona Miles has been appointed as the new head of Loughborough High School. The appointment follows the planned departure of Gwen Byrom, who left at Christmas to take up the role of founding principal at the North London Collegiate School International, Bangkok.

Miles, the current senior deputy head at Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls, will take up her new role at the start of the summer term.

She is an alumna of Nottingham Girls’ High School and graduated in 1997 with honours in English literature from Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. Miles was appointed as an English teacher at Haberdashers’, where she gained her teaching qualification. She stayed there until a love of science took her back to university to study medicine at King’s College London, where she was awarded an MBBS (Medicine) with distinction in 2008. She then returned to Haberdashers’, progressing through a number of increasingly senior roles.
