Our staff

Zuhra Ullah 

Associate Assistant Headteacher: Head of Sixth Form

I am proud to be involved in the development of the Sixth Form students at this crucial and exciting time in their lives. Being responsible for their teaching and learning and their academic progress is a great privilege. In my present role I work alongside the Student Support Manager and the Sixth Form team at Ralph Thoresby to ensure the effective day to day running of the sixth form. I am responsible for the tutorial, study and wellbeing programme, which includes deliver of the wider curriculum such as EPQ, Progression Module, Mentoring, Internships, Paired Reading Program and many other opportunities to help equip our students with the knowledge, skills and experience for their journey after Lawnswood.

Carolyne Coop

Student Support Manager

I am incredibly proud to be part of the sixth form team at Lawnswood School as I get to work with our students at a pivotal time in their lives.  From supporting students during their initial applications into the sixth form, right through to their final results day and beyond, I get to share these experiences with our amazing young people.  We value academic success in the sixth form but also know there is much more to life than this and we have a real commitment to student’s happiness and well-being.  Having trained as a Mental Health First Aider, I am able to promote emotional well-being and offer support to students throughout their time in Key Stage 5.
