NICOLA Huggett, the Head of Blundell's School, Tiverton, has been named as one of the Good Schools Guide's ten Heads to watch.

In an article in today's Daily Telegraph, Mrs Huggett, who was the first female Head to be appointed at the school since it was founded in 1604, is described as 'unpretentious and effective, a mother of four, a runner and eventer'.

She comes in at number two on the list in the article 'What does it take to be a superhead', which looks at the qualities of school heads and parental expectation.
