GLENN Smith, the new principal of Honiton Community College, says his first half term has "flown by".

"However, it has far exceeded my expectations in terms of enjoyment," he told the Herald.

"I have particularly liked meeting and chatting with students.

"I do believe the vast majority of our students are well mannered, well motivated and well behaved young adults, and a real credit to our community."

Mr Smith added: "Our Year 6 open evening gave me a chance to meet lots of parents. It was a resounding success and over 400 parents/carers and students attended.

"This year, in addition to the open evening, we also opened our doors during the college day for the first time. We invited Year 6 students and their families to visit the College and join one of our daily 'working tours'.
