Sir Mike Tomlinson

On Monday 23rd May we had two special visitors from the Department of Education, one of which was Sir Mike Tomlinson.  As many of you will be aware Sir Mike Tomlinson was appointed as Birmingham Education Commissioner in 2014 and has taken a keen interest in the school since then.  Sir Mike was shown around the academy by two of our academy ambassadors and was pleased to hear all about the positive changes over the last year.  Following his visit we had another exciting event, which was our first chance for our new Year III intake of children and their parents to have a look around the academy and meet some of our teachers.  The children got a chance to enter a special competition and the winners will be announced on 13th June when Mrs Baxter goes to St Benedict's School to lead their Year 2 assembly.
