(UK) Harrogate: 14 SPED students excluded from school; new head to help

Jan 28, 2019, Harrogate Adverstiser: Henshaws College appoints new Head after difficult year of staffing shortages https://www.harrogateadvertiser.co.uk/news/education/henshaws-college-appoints-new-head-after-difficult-year-of-staffing-shortages-1-9561125 A Harrogate special needs college has appointed a new headteacher following a tumultuous year which saw 14 students temporarily excluded. Henshaws Specialist College on Bogs Lane, Harrogate, made headlines in October when it excluded 14 of its students, with 'the most complex needs', over staffing shortages. Last year, the college was rated as requiring improvement by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission - but now it says it is taking a positive turn, after appointing its new principal, Adrian Sugden. … Mr Sugden has worked with young people with a range of special needs and disabilities, including autism and Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs across the north of England, including Bradford, Nottinghamshire and Darlington.
