Richard Lord, the new head teacher of The Deepings School, wrote a newsletter for students, parents and guardians setting out his vision for success.

Mr Lord said: “We are working together for your benefit and to prepare you for life after The Deepings School.

“It is your right to access a high-quality education, but it is also your responsibility to push yourselves as hard as you possibly can to ensure that you make the most of the opportunities that we will make available to you over the course of this year.”

Secondary schools in South Holland, Bourne, Deeping St James, Baston and Kirton who have provided such “opportunities” through the dedication, innovation and hard work of teaching and support staff, governors, parents and students are being recognised by the Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian.

Our third Education Awards, to be presented at South Holland Centre, Spalding, on Thursday, November 10 at 7pm, will include an announcement of the winner of the School of the Year (Secondary) Award, sponsored by Maples Solicitors of Spalding.

Anita Toal, managing partner of Maples Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to be one of the sponsors for the Education Awards again this year.
