We have started 2017 with a fantastic OFSTED report, and the hard work of our students has been reflected in their mocks. These were not easy times and 2017 was a challenging year for many of us. Schools were all preparing for the continued cuts to education funding. We have all been ‘tightening our belts’ for several years now but the expected implementation of the new funding formula could be a real ‘game changer’ for many London schools, including our own.
