What says..

Rector is bubbly, enthusiastic, fun, keen on teaching with the 'wow' factor and incredibly efficient. He is the only head who, when faced with a barrage of questions to which he did not instantly know the answer, left detailed answers for us to collect with the rest of the bumf from his office.

But boy, the school has ‘improved and moved forward.' An inspired appointment, he runs the school with a senior management team (OK, yawn, yawn) but Brodie spreads his net wide.
