The Headteacher: Pursuit of excellence on the wall

One of our new initiatives of this academic year is what we call our ‘Wall of Excellence’. This sounds rather grand, but as many of our students are quick to point out it is a wall without bricks or blocks. It is in fact a rather fetching blue display board which is prominently positioned in one of the main corridors within the school.

The positioning is important, virtually all of our students pass this board each day on their way to and from the school canteen.

We deliberately chose not to place the work in our entrance hall as students never spend long in that area.
