Kelly Armstrong

Field Court Junior Academy

The Award for Headteacher of the Year in a Primary School

Gloucester, Gloucestershire

Kelly Armstrong has been inspirational in leading Field Court Junior School over the past nine years.

It is incredibly difficult to put in to words all of the amazing things Kelly has done and continues to do for the school and its children. She is humble about all that she has achieved as she doesn’t see anything she does as going above and beyond. This is not and has never been a job for Kelly; this is what she feels everyone should be doing naturally every day.

She lives and thrives because of our children and never misses an opportunity in order to enhance their learning. The entire school community will forever be in her debt . She is just magic.
