He spoke with Governors, the school’s Head Boy and Head Girl, Headteacher Graham Napier, Executive Director David Moody and David Hatchatt National Director for Secondary Schools. He discussed the school plans, their improvement strategy and the new policies already implemented. He toured the school, visited classrooms and spoke with teachers, before attending a music group rehearsal lesson where he is pictured with students and Mr Drinkall.
