A leading AET principal has received a major honour to mark her outstanding contribution to secondary education.

Caroline Haynes, Principal of Tendring Technology College in Essex, has been made a Doctor of Education by Anglia Ruskin University (ARU).

Professor Michael Thorne, Vice Chancellor of ARU said: "Caroline believes passionately in leading a college where students and staff can thrive and flourish together in the pursuit of outstanding achievement, supported by the values of respect, honesty and responsibility. We are delighted to welcome her into our Anglia Ruskin community."

Tendring Technology College became an AET academy in 2011 and two years later earned the ultimate accolade from Ofsted who rated the school as 'outstanding.'

Doctor Haynes said: " I was delighted to be awarded an Honorary Doctorate for Education by Anglia Ruskin University. I started my career as a teacher 34 years ago at Sir Charles Lucas school in Colchester, where I learnt how to teach. I am still learning. I have been privileged to work with wonderful young people and dedicated staff and have always sought to create a culture of learning where everyone, students and staff can achieve their best."
