It was particularly pleasing to host a number of important guests that are crucial to the partnership work we do in school:

• Gareth Shuttleworth – Dallaglio RugbyWorks. Gareth and a colleague are currently working with a Year 10 group to raise aspirations and fully engage them in their education through a combination of rugby and mentoring.
• Tony Day – Headteacher of Joseph Chamberlain College
• Laura Omelchuk & Parveen Bharath – Hays Recruitment Agency
• CORE Education Trust Executive Team
• Governors

And finally, a huge City Academy thank you to our guest speaker, James Golding. James spoke honestly and from the heart about the challenges he has overcome in his life, and his tremendous achievements in the world of cycling and fund raising. We can certainly all take lessons from his positive outlook and determination to overcome barriers: Dream big, work hard!
