She added:
"I have loved seeing all the new businesses open in Knaresborough this month with more on the way, town seems to be thriving and we feel super proud to have brought part of our school into the heart of the town centre. "It really is a dream come true, I can’t believe this is real and I’m so grateful to everyone in my life who has helped make this possible. "I have the most incredibly supportive teaching team, the most inspiring students, an amazing family who support me every step and a husband who deserves a medal. "Sometimes dreams really do come true!"
