Clarendon Academy was celebrating on Wednesday when the Trowbridge school unveiled a plaque awarded by Investors in People (IIP).

The Frome Road school, which is sponsored by the Education Fellowship, received the IIP gold award for the work it does supporting its 133 staff and over 1,000 pupils.

IIP’s report praised the school’s leadership and teamwork following an inspection at Clarendon Academy.

Principal Mark Stenton said: “We are all extremely proud of this achievement.”

Only three per cent of organisations in the country have received the status.

I take it this means that they sent their headmaster on an anger management course after kicking in a door of a local house? Or is it to help the "academy" increase its terrible gsce pass rate this year?

Whilst no doubt an achievement, I would be more interested in hearing what he has to say about his school's dire performance in the GCSE league tables this year. With the school's worst results since 2007, only the disastrous performance of Wellington sparing them bottom place in Wiltshire's league table. At least the Head of Wellington had the decency to resign.
