Stu­dent lead­er­ship team at St Paul’s meets MP

Staines Informer - - NEWS -

STU­DENTS at a Sun­bury school wel­comed MP Kwasi Kwarteng for a tour of the fa­cil­i­ties.

The visit on Fri­day April 29 fol­lowed the re­cent suc­cess of St Paul’s Catholic Col­lege, which has been na­tion­ally recog­nised for the sec­ond year running for its ex­cep­tional 2015 per­for­mance by the Schools, Stu­dents and Teach­ers net­work (SSAT).

Dur­ing his visit the MP met James McNulty, act­ing head­teacher, and the Stu­dent Lead­er­ship Team, where talks fo­cused on how the school had gone from strength to strength over the last few years.

The MP also had a guided tour of St Paul’s, al­low­ing him the op­por­tu­nity to see classes in ac­tion.

Mr Kwarteng re­marked that he very much en­joyed his visit and see­ing the con­tin­u­ing trans­for­ma­tion that the school is un­der­go­ing, he added: “I was im­pressed by the school’s fo­cused and driven lead­er­ship and by its charm­ing and con­fi­dent stu­dents. Now in the top 10% of schools na­tion­ally for both at­tain­ment and progress recog­nised by the SSAT, St Paul’s is a school con­tin­u­ing down a path of gen­uine trans­for­ma­tion that be­gan some 10 years ago.

“In ad­di­tion to this proud aca­demic record, St Paul’s has a strong sense of com­mu­nity that cre­ates an en­vi­ron­ment where stu­dents are happy and sup­ported.

“I look for­ward to vis­it­ing the school again in the near fu­ture”.
