Dirk Gilleard

I caught up with my colleague Dirk Gilleard this evening...

It was great to see Dirk, catch up on the news and hear about how things are going. Dirk is a great coach and a constant learner who has shaped learning provision particularly in secondary schools. He told me that the latest value added results place 62% of Leeds secondary schools in the top two quartiles, 5A*-C results in line with national averages and with 5A*-G and 1A*-G results above national averages; what a transformation when you compare them with where  we were in 2001! We certainly have a lot to be proud of but as always so much more to do to achieve world class outcomes.
