I moved on to Benton Park School...

I was met by David Foley, the headteacher, whose enthusiasm and commitment has transformed the leadership and the culture at the school over the last couple of years. I had been invited to the school because Benton Park was holding a Careers Fair over two days and had attracted 48 providers from the universities and colleges to the armed forces; from Morrisons to a local hairdressing salon. This ambitious Careers Fair will provide information, advice and guidance about jobs and the world of work to 950 students from Year 9 to Year 13 and their parents. 

This was a great initiative and the scale of the approach was impressive. I was delighted to visit Benton Park School again and see first hand what David and his team have achieved, their plans for the future and the improving outcomes at A2 and GCSE level.
