We are delighted to announce the appointment of Kathy Campbell as Shrewsbury's Director of Admissions. Kathy takes up this post in our Senior Management Team in September 2012.
Kathy has a degree in Design and Communication from Ravensbourne, and has twelve years of experience of schools' marketing. She will be coming to us from Stowe School where she is currently the Director of Admissions and Marketing.
Kathy's earlier career was in commercial design and marketing, working for Conrans, The Times Literary Supplement and The Times Educational Supplement. Previous clients have included Sony, Argos, Harrods and CBS Records. She has also taught A Level Graphic Design modules at an independent girls' school, and has been a visiting Graphic Design lecturer on higher education courses.
Kathy has two daughters - Hannah (17) who goes on to university this autumn, and Jenny (16) who is looking forward to joining Shrewsbury's Sixth Form this September.
When she can find some spare time, Kathy's passion is dancing - ballroom, salsa, jive and tango - and she has thoroughly enjoyed teaching Sixth Formers to Waltz, Quickstep and Cha Cha Cha before their Leavers' Ball.
Kathy writes "I am delighted to have been offered the post of Director of Admissions at Shrewsbury at such an exciting time in the School’s development as it moves to full co-education. It is a vibrant school with an excellent, world-class reputation and welcoming atmosphere – what a pleasure it will be to have so many exceptional qualities to select from when promoting the breadth and quality of an education at Shrewsbury to a prospective pupil!"
