CATHERINE Davis is leaving her post as headteacher of The Trinity Primary School in Devizes.

Miss Davis joined The Trinity’s predecessor, St Peter’s Primary School in Bath Road, as headteacher in September 2009. In her time there the school improved from inadequate to satisfactory under Ofsted ratings.

A replacement school for St Peter’s was needed as the number of pupils in that area of Devizes was dwindling.

The Trinity Primary School was built next to the new houses by Quakers Walk, off London Road, and it opened last Easter.

Miss Davis was unavailable for comment but on the school's website it said she will be leaving in the spring and would be moving to London where she has secured a job as a headteacher.

Peter Goodliffe, vice-chairman of governors, praised her for her hard work.
