Dr Dan bids a fond farewell to outgoing Debenham High School Head Teacher Mike Crawshaw

Dr Dan with outgoing Debenham High School Headteacher Mike CrawshawIt was a real privilege for Dan to visit Debenham High School to bid farewell to longstanding Head Teacher Mike Crawshaw, who has decided to retire after 23 years of service at the school. Under Mike’s leadership, Debenham High School has gone from strength to strength and is now one of the highest performing schools in Suffolk, achieving the rare feat of being rated ‘outstanding’ in every category in its latest Ofsted report in 2008. In January 2011 Debenham became an academy, which provides it with greater financial independence and flexibility regarding its curriculum. Mike has been a tremendous public servant over the past 38 years, and Dan has seen at firsthand during his many visits to the school how he has served as a real inspiration to all of his pupils. Dan would like to thank Mike for his enormous contribution to young peoples’ lives in Suffolk over the years, and wishes him every success in the future. He would also like to welcome his successor, Julia Upton, to the school and very much looks forward to working with her in the weeks and months ahead.
