THE headteacher of Alder Grange Community and Technology School in Rawtenstall was one of 100 successful heads invited to a reception for schools rated ‘outstanding’.
David Hampson was encouraged to attend the function for schools in the North West by Sir Michael Wilshaw, the chief inspector of school standards watchdog Ofsted.
Mr Hampson said: “It was an honour to be invited and I was proud that Alder Grange’s outstanding leadership and management and outstanding behaviour and safety stands out.
“Ofsted have made it harder to get an outstanding grade so it’s a reflection on the teaching staff and the pupils at Alder Grange that we received the highest grading.”
Mr Hampson was praised by Sir Michael Wilshaw as an ‘outstanding headteacher.’ Sir Michael said: “Thanks to the work of dedicated teachers and outstanding headteachers up and down the country, England’s school system is making some genuine and radical advances.”
