Name: Rachel Lloyd

Role: Assistant Headteacher

My passion for teaching and education began in 1994 when I started teaching in a very small primary school in the Rhondda Valleys, where I grew up. In 1995 I was very lucky to be offered a job in Marlborough Junior School where I remained for 17 years. I feel very privileged to have been part of the Marlborough family for over 28 years. In my long career I have taught all ages from Year 6 to Nursery and I have been Assistant Headteacher at Marlborough for the past 5 years. 

I live in Penylan with my husband and two grown up children. In my spare time to love spending time with my family; I particularly love walks in the country and travelling to new places and cities. 

My favourite pastimes are sewing, cooking, gardening and I am an avid reader. 

I also love eating out and going to the theatre with family and friends. 

My top character strength is perseverance.
