Miss Thompson: Winner of the Pearson ‘UK Headteacher of a Secondary School’
“Ms Thompson’s passion and dedication to provide the best possible future for her students is relentless. She works tirelessly with local community leaders, politicians and businesses to ensure students have opportunities to succeed in school life and beyond. Ms Thompson actively encourages students from all backgrounds to attend Malone College, transforming it into the most culturally diverse school in Northern Ireland.
Miss Thompson’s enthusiasm and optimism to improve the lives of students has transformed Malone College into a vibrant learning environment that is frequently referred to as an example of good practice by the Inspectorate.”
We are delighted with our recent ETI inspection report.
The report emphasised 'the improvements are the result of a whole staff working together, relentlessly and with energising and empowering leadership'.
Our pupils were described as being 'articulate and speak with pride about: the diverse, inclusive and welcoming school culture; the positive working relationships.'
The report also stated 'the range of data to track and monitor the progress of individual pupils, and to ...intervene as appropriate, is highly effective.'
We were commended for our community links and outreach programmes, wide range of initiatives introduced to support the health and well-being of the staff, teacher professional learning and action-based research.
This is a fantastic achievement and the full report can be read here
