Pupils in Alford hear from retired top cop
Youngsters at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School (QEGS), in Alford, welcomed an “arresting” ex-pupil at their recent Speech Night.
Heather Roach, recently-retired deputy chief constable of Lincolnshire Police, was speaker for the event.
A spokesman for the school said: “Heather gave an inspirational speech emphasising the importance of working hard and pushing oneself outside your comfort zone.”
The event was a chance to celebrate the past year’s achievements, including the school’s best-ever A-level results – with 80 per cent of grades received being at A* to B.
