Headmistress of Bolton School girls’ division, Sue Hincks, who chaired the panel which appointed Sanders, said: “We were all struck with Jasmin’s warmth, as well as with her professionalism. She showed a perfect understanding of the need to work very closely with parents in a setting like ours, so that the children develop and learn in a nurturing environment with seamless continuity between home and nursery.”
In January, Sue Hincks became president of the Girls’ School Association. Before assuming the role, she laid out her vision for independent schools
Sanders said: “I have extensive experience in different early years settings in a range of posts over the years, and I am also actively involved in groups within the local authority, such as the Early Years’ Consultation Group and Early Years’ Sub Group. I am really looking forward to working at Bolton School’s outstanding nursery, and continuing to provide an excellent early education as we prepare children for school life. I also look forward, in time, to delivering some exciting new developments and events.’
Sanders is also the network chair of the National Day Nursery Association’s Bury, Bolton and Wigan Network.
