On the final day of the Spring Term, we were delighted to host a visit from the Secretary of State for Education, The Rt Hon Damian Hinds MP. During his brief visit, Mr. Hinds had the opportunity to meet with pupils and toured the building, hearing about our exciting new build project, before meeting with staff. Mr. Hinds was joined at this meeting by Cllr Kevin Davis, Leader of the Council, Cllr Andrea Craig and members of our leadership team.

Mr. Hinds was particularly interested to hear staff views on the important topics of teacher workload, mental-health of young people, staff recruitment and especially school funding. Ms. Cavanagh, joined by both Mr. Brook and Ms. Venter, our Deputy Headteachers, and Peter-Mayhew Smith, our Chair of Trustees relished the opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing education now and in the near future.
