SWANMEAD School has welcomed two extra faces to its staffing team following the Easter holidays.

Cerin Rigden joins the school in Ilminster as a science teacher after moving from Somervale School in Bath.

The school has also enlisted the services of maths teacher Zoë Cameron.

She joins Swanmead from Chilton Trinity School in Bridgwater.

Headteacher Mark Walker said: “We are very excited about the variety of experience and background that we have appointed into the school with the arrival of Miss Rigden and Mrs Cameron.

“It is always exciting to welcome new faces to your school community – I trust they will all be made to feel welcomed in this time of continued change for the school.”
