School Trips

CEO's Blog - 9th December 2022 School Trips School trips used to be the highlight of the year for many children across the UK, partly because of how infrequently they happened. It was the novelty rather than the quality which made them special. That's not how we do...

The end of another school year.

They seem to fly by so fast.

To be honest it’s a tricky ask to write up the year in a few hundred words, so this blog will be short and sweet (that wasn’t a hint Lauren!!!)

We’ve had amazing highs with the opening of Springboard, our superb Hawthorns Ofsted and our stunning post 16 developments. The Greatest Showman was still one of my favourites.

We’ve had some frustrations – so many children wanting places in our schools. I’m not going to go on about affordability!

We’ve also had to deal with some real lows. Too many children have passed away. We’ve had to deal with saying goodbye to a number of children this year. It’s always so difficult.

I’m away to Turkey for a holiday with my family. I hope you can all manage a lovely summer – see you all in a few weeks.
