It’s all academic

MYSTERIOUS goings on at Portland School.

Headteacher Elaine Hamilton has been whisked away from school in the middle of term to take part in some sort of training programme, and will not be back until September.

Outwood Academy say Mrs Hamilton is helping out in the training of future ‘principals’ - that’s headteachers to you and me.

This is all muddled still further by the revelation that Portland is still under the control of the local authority - five months after it should have become an Academy.

Confused? Tell me about it.
