Following his transformation of this failing school, Barry Smith is one of the most talked-about headteachers in the country. After just one year, the school showed an unprecedented improvement in its GCSE results, and staff and pupils were able to work and learn in peace. Barry's success has been acknowledged by Ofsted and The TES https://www.tes.com/news/welcome-most-controversial-school-britain. Topics will include - What does turnaorund mean? What does it take, and how long? What lessons have we learned since 2017? Prepare for a dymanic and challenging evening.
