Lasswade headteacher outlines his vision

Fresh from taking over the reins at Lasswade High, headteacher Alan Williamson has outlined his aspirations for the school.

The father of two, who arrived from Hawick High, told the Advertiser that the attractions of the Midlothian school were “numerous”.

He explained: “The headlines in the HMIe [Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Education] report were that the school has great pupils, a great community and a great staff. That’s what attracted me to the job, over and above the fact that I would be coming to a brand new building.

“Another thing that attracted me was the community aspect of the job.”
