Mrs Julia Thomas Haigh



Described by Estyn as "inspirational" with "an extremely clear-sighted vision,” Mrs Thomas is the positive driving force behind Ysgol Heulfan. She ensures all staff are ahead of the game, aware of new strategies and the latest initiatives. Mrs Thomas is loved by all the children in the school whom she refers to as her "angels".

Well respected within the Local Authority, Mrs Thomas is often called upon to provide support and guidance to other schools. Following the school's assessment for the prestigious Inclusion Award in 2011, Mrs Thomas was then approached by the company behind the award who were very impressed with her leadership and management skills. Mrs Thomas is now an assessor for the award, visiting schools across England and Wales.

A keen gardener and traveller, Mrs Thomas inspires our children with rewards such as trips to Wimbledon, rides in limousines, camping trips, shopping expeditions and lots, lots more. She is always available to parents and children and goes over and above to help families and our local community.

Mum to the gorgeous A.G. who is a happy member of Ysgol Heulfan, Mrs Thomas is kept busy at home as the whole family enjoy cycling. Her husband Russ regularly 'volunteers' to carry out work in and around the school with the children, and is valued by staff and children alike.
