Headteacher’s pledge to be ‘outstanding’
A secondary school headteacher has pledged to make his new school one of the best in the city.
Simon Hawkins took over at Fir Vale School four weeks ago after joining from a school in Bradford. He believes the school, which was rated as good by Ofsted inspectors in 2015, has the potential to become outstanding. Mr Hawkins said: “It’s a very caring, inclusive and ambitious school with exciting potential to become outstanding.”
