I started the day early with Simon Flowers at Carr Manor High School...

This is a great school with a brilliant team of colleagues who are working to transform outcomes for young people in this community. Simon showed me a picture taken at the School Prom... it was picture of Simon and some of his students... students who had not been expected to finish school and achieve anything but because of the relationships and the self-belief the team had developed with these young men, here they were; some of the real but hidden successes. Simon and I talked about the 14 - 19 Review, Trusts and Learning Campuses and how we could help Carr Manor High School continue to develop its offer to its students, their families and the community.

It was a great start to the day.
