A BECCLES headteacher has stated his desire to make his school 'one of the greatest in Suffolk' following a glowing Ofsted report.

Jeremy Rowe said he was very proud of his staff and students at Sir John Leman High School after it was judged to be good overall with some outstanding qualities.

The report said the school had future potential to improve, although pupils attainments and attendance, the school's contribution to community cohesion and their effective assessment have received the top grading.

The school's sixth form has also attracted an outstanding grade in three of the four categories looked at by inspectors.
