Our schools’ big fightback
- Credit: Nick Butcher
A year ago this week, the future for Lowestoft schools looked very bleak indeed.
Benjamin Britten High School's Ofsted meant three out of the four high schools in the town were in 'special measures' - with many primaries also graded as 'inadequate' or 'requires improvement'.
But today, a year on from hitting rock bottom, The Journal looks at how our schools have fought back.
Our special report tells the inside story of how two high schools are making changes to turn things around.
It also tells the story of Nadia Paczuska, who has come to Meadow Primary School, in Lowestoft, as part of an elite group of the next generation of rising school leaders - and is intent on transforming it into one of the best schools in the country.
