He said ‘This is really exciting news and I am delighted. Glen Hills is an excellent primary school which provides a very strong start to pupils in my constituency.
Academies form an integral part of the Government’s education policy to raise attainment for all children and to bring about sustained improvement.
By converting to Academy status I am confident that Glen Hills will build on its already outstanding results and achieve even more for its pupils. I look forward to visiting the school very shortly to hear more about their plans for the future.’
