New head in post.

A NEW headteacher has taken up her post at a North East school which specialises in teaching pupils with dyslexia.

Formerly deputy head Carol Hodgson was promoted to the top job at Nunnykirk Centre for Dyslexia, near Morpeth, Northumberland, following the retirement of Simon Dalby-Ball in July.

Mum-of-one Carol, 48, is originally from Whitley Bay and has taught at the school for 22 years.

After leaving mainstream teaching in Leicester, she began teaching English at Nunnykirk in 1986, later undertaking specialist dyslexia training.

She became Special Educational Needs coordinator for the school in 1997.

Carol was made deputy head in 2001 and is also a consultant for the National Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexic Pupils.

Carol, of Felton, said: "I am really excited."
