Two Norfolk teachers are celebrating a milestone in their ambition to become headteachers by gaining a national qualification. 

Rebecca Guy-Ragan, year leader at Dereham Church of England Junior Academy, and Louise Wright, deputy head of Swaffham Church of England Primary Academy, gained their professional qualification for headship.

Both teach at schools that are among the 110 in the Norwich Diocese family, of which 36 are  Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust (DNEAT) academies and a further eight with St Benet’s Multi Academy Trust.

Miss Wright said: “It was a pleasure to share our learning with the Diocese, DNEAT and St Benet's leaders who made us feel welcome and that the hard work was worth it - we can look forward to an exciting future!"
