A Boston head teacher has announced he is to leave his post and take up a national education role.

Dr Jason Howard, head teacher of Boston High School, has been promoted to serve as one of Her majesty’s Inspectors (HMIs) effective from September this year.

He said: “I will be very sad to say goodbye to the wonderful staff and students at Boston High School at the end of the year in order to take up my new role as HMI.

“Last year the school was ranked 34th out of all state schools in the UK for its GCSE results and the Governing Body will advertise nationally to find the next leader who will take the school to the next level of success.”

Along with contributing to the inspection of schools, HMIs act as ‘national leaders’ in education and help head teachers and governing bodies to improve schools.
