Marlwood's new lease of life

 

INSPECTORS have hailed the turnaround in fortunes at Marlwood School as it exits special measures.

Education watchdog Ofsted visited the secondary school in Alveston to check on its progress and said the school was "enjoying a new lease of life".

While concluding that the school still requires improvement overall, the inspectors rated it good in three out of four categories and praised the progress made under head teacher Del Planter

It marks a huge turnaround for the school, which was rated 'inadequate' less than three years ago.
