During the course of recent rows about the future of secondary education in Rhyl, the head of Rhyl High School slipped away and has been replaced by Claire Armitstead who is currently Deputy Head of a school in Wrexham. Mrs. Armitstead lives in Chester and is quoted on Denbighshire County Council’s web site a follows:

"I am truly honoured and delighted to be appointed to the post of headteacher at Rhyl High School. I look forward to working with Rhyl’s students, staff, governors and parents to build on the existing good work already underway to create a school we can all be proud of. There are some exciting challenges ahead but I am confident that by working together as a community we can ensure all our young people achieve the success they deserve."

'Some exciting challenges ahead' sounds like an understatement.

Good luck, Mrs. Armitstead.
