An Interview with: Liz Robinson

Liz Robinson became head of Surrey Square Primary School in January 2006. She was just 29 at the time, making her the youngest headteacher in England. Following an outstanding Ofsted in November 2009, she was asked to lead the amalgamation with the linked Infant School, and the newly formed Primary School was judged outstanding in November 2016. Liz, and her colleague Nicola Noble, developed a model of co-headship from 2014 onwards. In this article, Liz discusses how working flexibly has helped her to balance work and family life, and how herself and Nicola made a co-headship model of leadership work successfully, both for themselves and for their school.
