Geraldine Foley started her teaching career in Liverpool in 1992. She moved to Cardiff in 1999 and took up a new Deputy Headteacher post. Geraldine started her first headship in 2004 and her second headship at Marlborough Primary School in 2011.
Marlborough is a vibrant, inclusive school in the heart of Penylan community. There are 530 pupils on roll, including Y Galon, our 30 place Specialist Resource provision for pupils with Severe and Complex needs.
Geraldine is Chair of the NPQH Assessment Centre for the Central South Consortium (CSC) and is part of a pilot cohort of System Leaders with CSC.
Geraldine is a flagbearer for well-being. She is fiercely protective in ensuring that she meets her own well-being needs, and is equally proactive in developing a school culture where the importance of well-being and relationships is at the core.
“I am passionate about learning, I am a true lifelong learner, and dedicated in continuing my professional learning. Equally, I champion the professional learning entitlement of others. I passionately believe that we will only have a world leading education in Wales if we engage directly with the absolute best educationalists globally.”
Geraldine lives with Paul, her partner of 24 years, and Rollo her dog and trusty sidekick. She is a lifelong fan of Radio 4’s The Archers and enjoys running and yoga, but nothing brings Geraldine more joy than being outdoors in nature.
