Epping Mayor "very impressed" with Epping St Johns School
Epping Mayor Les Burrows has praised the "positive attitude" of the headteacher and students at Epping St John's School following a visit on Monday morning.
Mr Burrows, accompanied by his wife, Carol, was given a tour of the school by headteacher Allan Osborne and Year 8 students Scarlett Hunter and Jodie Jenkins.
Mr Burrows said: "I was very impressed with the school and with the positive attitude of the headteacher, Allan Osborne, and pupils, and can see why the school is now over-subscribed for next September.
"The school has a very strong debating forum and School Council which shadows the teaching staff so the students have an influence on how the school is run."
He added: "I believe the school will go from strength to strength.
"As the Town Mayor I am proud to have the school within Epping. I would like to thank Mr Osborne, Scarlett and Jodie for taking the time to show my wife and I around."
