A HEADTEACHER has helped lift his sixth school out of special measures and promised parents and pupils he is there to stay.

The Misbourne School in Great Missenden was given a rating of ‘inadequate’ in several areas by Ofsted in November 2010, but performed well in every category when visited by inspectors last month.

When Robert Preston joined the school in June 2011 it had barely improved since entering special measures, a title given to poorly performing schools.

Since then standards have improved dramatically and Mr Preston says that is down to the hard work of everyone at the school.

But after revitalising five other schools he says he has no plans to move on again.

“I am here for the long haul,” he said.

“I am excited by what we have achieved and what we are going to achieve.

“The future looks bright and I want to make this the school of first choice.

“We don’t just want to be good in every area, but outstanding.”
