This award is a ringing endorsement of the effort and vision of Mr Jones in leading the school's incredible progress. Since his appointment the school has achieved significant year-on-year improvements.
Mr Jones modestly maintains that "although this is a personal award, it would not have been possible for me to achieve it without the full and dedicated support of all stakeholders which include staff, students, parents and governors".
The governors are very proud of the school, its leadership, staff and students.
