Blessed Edward Bamber Catholic Multi Academy Trust

Secretary of State, Nadhim Zahawi, for education meeting staff and students at St Mary's

Secretary of State Visit

We were proud to welcome the Secretary of State for Education, Nadhim Zahawi, and his ministerial team to St. Mary’s Catholic Academy.

The minister and his team spent over two hours in the school talking to staff, students, literacy leaders and the Local Authority. We discussed a wide range of issues, including the town wide approach to improving literacy and inclusion. He was very positive about the work being done in the school, Trust and town to improve pupils’ outcomes and life chances.
