Name: Geraldine Foley

Role: Headteacher

I started my teaching career in Liverpool way back in 1992. I moved to Cardiff in 1999 and was the Deputy Headteacher at Bryn Hafod and Headteacher at Greenway before landing my dream job at Marlborough in 2011.

Outside of school, I live with Paul my partner of 25 years and Rollo the school dog (and trusty sidekick). I love being outdoors in nature, appreciating the beauty of the parks, forests, coastal footpaths and beaches.

My favourite place is Cornwall and I love sitting on Porthgwarra beach watching the seals in the sea.

I am a life-long The Archers fan and I enjoy catching up with events in Ambridge on Radio 4 every evening. I have very eclectic music tastes ranging from The Wedding Present, Bananarama, Sonic Youth to Daft Punk.

I am lucky that Paul loves cooking and is a very talented home chef. My favourite dish is toad in the hole.

My top character strength is appreciation of excellence and beauty.

These are a few of my favourite things!
