OUT: Craig Morrison has left his role as principal of KES Academy

THE executive principal of King’s Lynn Academy (KLA) has left his post at the school in the wake of a critical Ofsted report.

Craig Morrison had been executive principal at the school and at King Edward Seventh (KES) Academy.

In an Osfted report published last month KLA was graded as inadequate and the outcome for pupils was described as “not good”.

In a statement CWA Academy Trust which sponsors the school said: “The post of executive principal of both academies, held by Craig Morrison since September 2014, has been removed in order to provide more focused leadership in each academy.”

Mr Morrison started as principal at KLA in 2011 and first took up the role of executive principal overseeing KES and KLA in September 2014.

He will continue as principal at KES, but will be replaced at KLA by Alan Fletcher, who is currently director of achievement at the trust.

Dr Duncan Ramsey, chief executive of the trust, said: “The new leadership arrangements are designed to increase the leadership capacity at KLA as a key element in the trust’s plan to deliver the rapid improvement required as identified in the recent Ofsted report, as well as providing KES with the focused leadership to continue its journey towards an outstanding Ofsted grading.”
