“We are really grateful to Mayor Tom Kemp for taking the time to visit us and learn more about our vision for King Edward VI Academy and the high standards we always strive for.
“Our students were fantastic ambassadors for our school – very polite and happy to engage in discussions about everything they are learning.
“The Mayor was very interested in the range of our curriculum and the fact that we focus on character development and transferrable life skills.
“We spoke about the high academic standards we have as well and the importance of a holistic education, and students becoming well-rounded members of society.
“We look forward to welcoming him back in the future.”
