Mrs Sarah Winter, head teacher at Long Marston School since September, is to leave at the end of the summer term after only one year in the post.

Cllr. Jill Finlan, a governor at the school, told Councillors that Mrs Winter cited personal and family reasons for her resignation. She was appointed in 2009 to succeed Mr Peter Dickenson, who had held the post for 20 years.
