A HEAD­TEACHER has been pre­sented with a club’s most pres­ti­gious award.

Head­teacher of The Mis­senden School Robert Pre­ston was a guest speaker at a meet­ing of the The Ro­tary Club of Great Mis­senden speaker.

He told ro­tar­i­ans of his ex­pe­ri­ences in turn­ing around ‘fail­ing schools.’ Over re­cent years he has led sev­eral schools out of ‘spe­cial mea­sures’ and is known for his skill in this area.

He said he felt that the var­i­ous projects should be treated as a busi­ness with the key to suc­cess be­ing strong lead­er­ship and con­tin­u­ous en­gage­ment with stu­dents and staff.

Bar­bara Cann from the ro­tary said: “The school com­mu­nity is thriv­ing as a re­sult of Robert’s work and it is ob­vi­ous love and af­fec­tion are in abun­dance on all sides. Re­spect has formed a great part of this turnover and spills over from the school to the com­mu­nity at large.”

In recog­ni­tion of his ex­cep­tional ser­vice to ed­u­ca­tion and the com­mu­nity, The Ro­tary Club of Great Mis­senden in­vited Mr Pre­ston to be­come a Paul Har­ris Fel­low, which is one of the most pres­ti­gious awards in Ro­tary and is named af­ter its founder Paul Har­ris.
