Joanne Throssell

As the deputy headteacher of Ranskill, I want to ensure the very best education for every child at our school, which is why I joined the governing body. I have over 20 years’ experience as a teacher and have worked in a number of schools during this time, each with different strengths. I feel I can use this knowledge and experience to support the school and will do so to the best I can.
