I'm genuinely shocked at the negativity I see here. Mrs Stanley was, in my personal opinion, a phenomenal head. It didn't seem like she'd done all that much whilst she was here but when she left we truly saw her impact. She was thoughtful and personal with each and every one of us; she bumped into my sister in London and encouraged her specifically to do the IB when she couldn't decide, which has turned out to be a great decision. She was passionate, energetic and endearing. Thank you! :)

Shes a laugh, it must be said. Although I do agree about her love for League Tables, but she brought an interesting and creative insight into the way she would like our school to be: Jammy Doger Like

She is alright, though she tries too hard and namedrops too much. Really nice to you if she likes you however is very focused on acheiving results due to previous high levels which translates onto the girls and adds pressure.

Dedicated to the wellbeing of girls and the school. Very approachable and friendly and certainly has her heart in the right place. Those who make some of the neg comments believe too much gossip.

I think thats actually quite unfair - Mrs Stanley does things in her own way and sgouldn't be compared to previous headmistresses.

Very enthusiastic, maybe too much so. Perhaps she should have changed things more slowly. Having been a pupil under Miss Sheldon, Ms Harris and Mrs Stanley, she is my least favourite.

the schools rules and atmosphere causes pupils and perhaps teachers to dislike her.abbey is now far to focused on results and league tables than welfare of girls.one on one she is suprisingly nice!

Generally a good headmistress - uses highly innovative anecdotes e.g. Jammy Dodger comparison, very caring, can take a joke - one of her best qualities, is also fairly traditional.
