Mr Anderson has been Principal at Broadlands and overseen the last four years of improved results. He stated “I am absolutely delighted for the students and staff at Broadlands who have worked so hard to ensure that these fantastic results could be achieved. It has been a privilege to be a part of the success at Broadlands since we became an Academy and I am confident in the position the school now sits following its ‘Good’ Ofsted inspection earlier this year.”
