City of Norwich School has appointed Jo Philpott as its new headteacher from September of this year.

Paul Fisher, Chair of Governors at City of Norwich School said: 'We are delighted that Jo Philpott will be the new Headteacher from September. The final panel was unanimous that Jo was the right appointment to lead City of Norwich School.'

Ms Philpott added: 'I feel deeply privileged to have the honour of being the new headteacher at CNS and I'm looking forward to working closely with staff, students, parents and the whole school community.'
