Dr Dan meets with young people at the Ormiston Endeavour Academy in Ipswich

Dr Dan with Headteacher Sam Penn and students during his visit to the Ormiston Endeavour Academy in Ipswich.During his regular school visits, Dan see’s at firsthand the enthusiasm to learn that our young people show and is always full of admiration for our hardworking teachers and staff, who are prepared to go the extra mile to inspire children to succeed.

Last week he visited the Ormiston Endeavour Academy in Ipswich, an 11-16 secondary school, where he met with Headteacher Sam Penn before touring the school’s English, Science, Languages and Art departments.

Under Ms Penn’s leadership, Ormiston has continued to make excellent progress since it became an academy earlier this year and has improved results by 40% after only two terms, with 52% of GCSE students gaining five A*-C grades in English and mathematics this summer. All of the students were a credit to Ms Penn and her staff on his visit and he very much looks forward to visiting again.
