I then went on to the Metropole Hotel where we are hosting the 'British Council for School Environments' Study Tour of Leeds Schools...

I was there to welcome colleagues to Leeds before they went off on their bus tour to visit New Bewerley Community Primary School and Carr Manor High School. Ty Goddard, Director of the BCSE, also talked about the Study Tour and the transformation that had occurred in Leeds. He highlighted Leeds as a national success story and that we had a reputation for our vision and for getting things done. Shirley Parks and her colleagues and coleagues at New Bewerley Community Primary School, Carr Manor High School, Primrose High School and Shakespeare Primary School did a brilliant job showcasing Leeds.

The tour was a fantastic success and once again put Leeds on a national platform where we showed colleagues from across the country the Leeds vision, the transformation we are engaged in and the Leeds WOW factor!
