School wins high praise

DELIGHTED staff and students at a Hadleigh school are giving themselves a well-deserved pat on the back after being graded “outstanding” during a subject inspection.

An official from education inspectors Ofsted was at Hadleigh High School to run the rule over the school’s teaching of computer technology.

During the visit, the pupils’ learning of the subject and the quality of teaching on show were both considered to be of the highest standard.

The behaviour of students, along with the leadership and management at the school were also rated “outstanding”, while the inspector recognised youngsters were clearly enjoying their lessons which contributed to a “great atmosphere”.

Headteacher Caroline Gibson said: “We are thrilled that Ofsted has recognised that our approaches to teaching and learning allow pupils to achieve excellent examination results and develop the skills they need to become independent learners while developing a life-long love of learning.

“We are committed to preparing our students to develop the skills they require in a rapidly changing world.”
