School needs £3.5 mil­lion for vi­tal re­pairs

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

The school is now try­ing to raise £3.5 mil­lion just to bring the build­ings back up to a ba­sic stan­dard.

Mark Woods, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of Cam­bridge Merid­ian Academies Trust, said: “The pre­sen­ta­tion of the case by the pros­e­cu­tion made com­pletely clear the de­struc­tive im­pact that Mr Stewart’s ab­sence of lead­er­ship over an ex­tended pe­riod has had on the lo­cal com­mu­nity and school. The school has un­der­gone dra­matic im­prove­ments since join­ing our trust and is now in a very strong po­si­tion with con­sis­tently strong aca­demic re­sults and strong lead­er­ship. How­ever, we need our part­ners in­clud­ing the Ed­u­ca­tional Fund­ing Agency and Cam­bridgeshire County Coun­cil to sup­port us by mak­ing the sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment re­quired to ad­dress the legacy of ne­glect ap­par­ent in the build­ings. The lo­cal com­mu­nity has united be­hind our New Build­ing Strong Fu­ture cam­paign with over 1,000 of­fers of sup­port so far, and some won­der­ful acts of lo­cal gen­eros­ity.”
