Opportunities happen - when you create them

We were delighted this week that Ms George’s ongoing work allowed us an opportunity to shine a light on the brilliant talents our staff and students have with the Jack Petchey Awards.  Ms Chapman represented the senior leadership team at the event which would not have been possible without Ms George. Our toughest assignment was narrowing down the award winners. We shared a stage with our brilliant local schools too – here’s the local press link if you missed it
