On his visit he heard that Denmead was short of pupils for the next year and he urged parents to make sure they consider the school.

‘This is now a quite fabulous school full of engaged pupils, super teachers and good facilities, and it really is a transformation,’ said Mr Hollingbery.

‘I would like to thank Elaine and her team for their super work to turn it around in such a short space of time. I’m sure it was a challenge but it’s now a school everyone can be proud of.’
