WEST WORCESTERSHIRE MP Harriett Baldwin has hailed the ‘amazing’ turnaround which has seen significant exam results success at Tenbury High School.

She praised the work of principal Adrian Price and his team delivering improved exam results leading to a good Ofsted report earlier this year.

The school, which is now part of the Ormiston Academy Trust, had been in special measures since 2013 but the school was rated ‘good’ in the latest report.

Mrs Baldwin, whose constituency includes Tenbury, was given a tour of the school and was shown newly refurbished modern language and computer science classrooms made possible with the investment from the Academy Trust.

“The principal, teachers and pupils have all been doing amazing work at the school leading towards vastly improved results and a great Ofsted report and I was pleased to be able to visit in person,” she said.

“Tenbury High School school has benefited from a series of improvements to the buildings including new English and Mathematics classrooms and these have clearly led to improved academic performance.

“As someone who studied languages at degree level, I hope that the latest new classrooms inspire local students to greater success.

“I have nothing but praise for Tenbury High Ormiston Academy and look forward to celebrating student successes for many more years to come.”

Adrian Price said he was pleased that the MP had visited the school and that there had been an opportunity to celebrate the success of students and staff as well as show off facilities.

Tenbury High School became a member of the Ormiston Academy of schools as part of the recovery programme and following the appointment of Adrian Price as head teacher. There have been important changes in the monitoring of the progress of students.

As an Academy it is funded directly from the Department for Education instead of with funding via Worcestershire County Council.

The school has seen a major improvement in its examination results in the past two years.

This year the school performed above the national average in the summer exams

Tenbury High Ormiston Academy’s score of 0.18, equates to each student achieving on average almost one-fifth of a GCSE grade better per subject than they had been expected to achieve when they joined the Academy.
