“It is always a pleasure to visit Our Lady Queen of Peace and I was welcomed by range of staff and pupils who wished to talk with me about various issues from recycling to investment in education and young people’s mental health services.
“Head Girls and Boy Lucy, Zoe and Matthew were model representatives of their school and we had a good discussion about their roles as student leaders and the issues they were working on.
“The open evening was a fantastic opportunity for parents and Year Six children to have a tour of the school and see the subjects on offer and the environment in which they could be studying next September.”
