A Flintshire secondary school head teacher, who was awarded an OBE in the New Year’s Honours list, has been to Buckingham Palace to collect her award.

Mrs Rosemary Jones, head teacher of Ysgol Elfed High School, was recognised for her contribution to education.

She has led the school’s team of teachers and support staff to develop an Outstanding Learning Community, where achievement and wellbeing are priorities.

Standards at the school were judged to be ‘Excellent’ by Estyn in 2015 and in 2016 the school won the Wales Quality Award.

Rosemary Jones said:

“As the Queen presented the medal, she asked about our school. She listened attentively as I told her about the excellent staff and students. I also spoke about the supportive community of Buckley and its commitment to supporting education for young people.

“It was a wonderful experience to meet the Queen, in the 65th year of her reign, and to receive this recognition for the achievements of “Team Elfed”.”

Rosemary has twenty years of experience of school leadership. She started her teaching career in the 1970s in London.

After moving to Dyffryn Clwyd in 1984, she has worked at Ysgol Brynhyfryd, Ysgol Glan Clwyd and over the last ten years as headteacher of Elfed High School.
