A LEWISHAM secondary school has been congratulated by government inspectors after moving out of special measures.

Malory School, in Launcelot Road, Downham, was told its plan to maintain improvements in the quality of teaching and learning were “extensive, well-conceived and coherent”.

Headteacher Margaret Bond said: “The report means a lot to us because it is an independent endorsement of our commitment to improving the education and life chances of each and every pupil at the school.”
