We were delighted to welcome Councillor Clare Curran, Cabinet Member for Education and Learning to Unified Academy today. Clare lives locally, and Special Education Needs is one or her key areas or responsibility.

Students from Year 7 created a series of welcome posters and ahead of the visit and were excited to present them to the Cabinet Member when she arrived.

Principal, Annabelle Thomas and Laurie Cornwell, Deputy CEO of Orchard Hill College & Academy Trust showed Clare around school and introduced her to students and staff. Claire was impressed by the range of facilities for the students including the boxing gym, sensory room and reading hub. She loved meeting our therapy dog and she was keen to know about how we support our students to go on and be successful once they leave Unified. We are looking forward to welcoming Clare back in the near future as she continues to support the school’s progress.
