Annabel has been teaching at the school for just over a year and will begin her new role in September following the retirement of Alison Miller after 20 years.
Miss Ramsey brings with her a wealth of experience and ideas and beat a strong field of candidates from all over the UK.
Headmaster, Dr Glenn Moodie, said: “Annabel is an outstanding teacher and an experienced school manager having been Deputy Head at Archbishop Benson School in Truro. Her leadership skills shine through and I look forward to working with her in shaping the future of the Prep School.”
Born and bred in Falmouth, Annabel has travelled extensively during her life and is now looking forward to settling down and implementing some of her exciting plans for the school.
She said: “Truro High School is such a wonderful place to work and I feel privileged to have been given the opportunity to play an instrumental role in developing what I know will be a very bright future for the School. I hope to build on the fantastic work done for so many years by Alison Miller as well as introducing many new and exciting initiatives to ensure our girls make the most out of every minute they spend with us.”
Having worked in a number of co-educational schools, Annabel is the first to extol the benefits of all-girls education and says the difference it makes to children from day one can hardly be believed.
“The chance to lead a school where girls are given top priority and are put first in everything that we do is totally refreshing. Having come from a co-educational background I have been astonished at the heights that the girls can reach when the curriculum is aimed directly at them. I can honestly say that I have never met such happy girls in any other school.”
Annabel takes over from Alison Miller who is retiring after 20 years at the school to explore other opportunities outside the world of education. Commenting on her successor, Mrs Miller said: “I couldn’t be more pleased with my replacement, Annabel Ramsey is an exceptional and inspirational teacher and I know that she will be a wonderful Head. I can leave the Prep School in the summer secure in the knowledge that it is in very safe hands.”
