Louise Wright Reception
Mrs Wright is currently on Maternity leave. She became a teacher in July 2009 and worked in different schools doing supply work before getting the teaching position in our Reception Class. Before this she worked in nurseries and pre-schools.
Mrs Wright feels very lucky to be able to teach at St. John's as she attended the school as a child and loved it!
Mrs Cate Foundation Co-ordinator
Mrs Cate is our Headteacher. She first came to teach in Totnes in 1990 and clearly loves St John's as she's still there! She did take some time away to have her own family, she has five children Lawrie, Matt, Marilla, Ellis and Issy who all came to St John;s too!
Originally she came from Cornwall, and went to a primary school there called Germoe. At home Mrs Cate enjoys reading, listening to music and walking.
