Mrs Gledhill joins Ormiston Denes Academy after teaching for ten years in schools across Norfolk.  As a nationally certified Lead Practitioner, Mrs Gledhill has considerable experience in transforming teaching and learning for understanding in mathematics, as well as improving examination outcomes.  During her time at Attleborough Academy Mrs Gledhill oversaw over a thirty per cent rise in the proportion of students gaining A* - C grades in mathematics.

Mrs Gledhill said:

"This is an exciting opportunity for me. I believe that every child deserves equal opportunities to succeed in education. Mathematics is challenging, interesting, beautiful and extremely useful! Everyone can learn to do Mathematics - my aim is that all our students enjoy and feel confident with Mathematics and achieve the highest grades."

Ben Driver, Interim Principal, said:

"We are delighted to have appointed Mrs Gledhill to the Director of Mathematics role.  Providing sustained leadership is a vital part of ensuring we offer outstanding mathematics provision to every student at the Academy.  Furthermore, Mrs Gledhill’s commitment to her own classes will further raise the bar for what is already one of our strongest departments in terms of academic success.  We are confident this appointment will have a significant positive impact upon our students’ final achievements."

The appointment by Ormiston Denes is a sign of the Academy’s continued commitment to academic excellence, ensuring that every student achieves their full potential.
