A HEADTEACHER has been selected for a top role supporting struggling schools and those transferring to academy or federation status.

Paul Bramley, of St Francis of Assisi Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary in Ingleby Barwick, Stockton, is one of only 95 headteachers to be appointed to the role of national leader of education in the latest recruitment round.

He will now be invited to the National College's Learning and Conference Centre, in Nottingham, in April, for a formal induction and training for the role in driving school improvement which will also involve his staff.
