'The project provides an invaluable service to the Academy, particularly in it’s support of our more vulnerable students. Staff are always pleasant and approachable and their commitment is fantastic both during the school day and in providing after school activities. The financial support they have also provided to reward student success and to allow students to visit the Holocaust Centre at Laxton and study the negative effects of persecution play a much valued role in influencing positive behaviours. Thank you to all the team for another fabulous year'
