Julie Hazeldine (nee Prole)

Julie attended Flixton Girls School between September 1973 and June 1978 (transferring from Highfield Primary School in Urmston) and transferred to Urmston Grammar School for Girls from September 1978 to June 1980. She attended Manchester Metropolitan University (Polytechnic) to study on the one year Art Foundation Course followed by a degree in Fashion & Textiles. Julie went on to complete a one year, teacher training PGCE course at Liverpool John Moores (Liverpool Polytechnic) from 1984-85 and after 22 years in teaching, returned to Flixton as the Headteacher in September 2007.

As a pupil at Flixton Julie gained a full set of O Levels and also a full set of top grade CSEs completing 24 exam papers, as the top set students in those days had to do CSEs and double up with O Levels on top. She remembers her most inspirational teacher, Mrs Lakeland, who taught her for both Health Education CSE and A/O Level Human Biology, concurrently. Mrs Lakeland was a brilliant teacher with the vision and passion to take the group through an A/O level advanced course with the vast majority not only passing but gaining top grades, Julie feels that the A grade she gained in Human Biology gave her the scientific knowledge and understanding that was so vital in dealing with the COVID19 Pandemic in 2020.
