Fresher’s Fair

After such a successful Fresher’s Fair last year, students and staff were keen to get one in the diary for the beginning of this term. The event marked the end of our student induction programme where students were reminded of the school’s values and expectations and they were given the opportunity to consider their options and study programmes for the new term.

Some of the guest speakers and stakeholders we had attending were:
• Bikers Against Child Abuse
• Big Trini Austin Steel pan band
• Skills Training UK
• Monica GaGa ( Target Programmes Division, London Borough of Hillingdon
• P3 People Potential Possibilities (welfare services for young people)
• Sorted (Drug and alcohol counselling services)

Paul Chambers, Deputy Head, said “The highlight of my day was when we asked all the guests why they do what they do – it was amazing to hear their responses and to see how engaged all the students were!”

Thank you, and God bless you for all the work you have done with my son. It feels like I have my son back.
