​​​​​​​Headteacher's Weekly Message: 28th September 2018

Business Links provide great opportunities 

As part of our Futures Curriculum we have been fortunate enough to get some great links with The FCA. The FCA is the UK financial regulator, their job is to protect consumers and ensure the financial markets work fairly. As part of their work in the Newham community they want to help young people find pathways into work, higher education and self-employment and have teamed up with Sarah Bonnell and Rokeby to deliver a programme called Inspiring Futures. Their aim is to get young people thinking about their future and reaching their potential. At the end of the programme our students and their parents/carers will be invited to celebrate their achievements at a graduation event held at the head office. The programme  kicked off with a fantastic launch event at the newly built offices in the Stratford Olympic Park on Tuesday 25th September. Two students from Sarah Bonnell and Rokeby School unveiled the plaque with Andrew Bailey, CFO of the FCA. Staff from the FCA said ‘ Our last building was opened by the Queen, we thought it would be nice to invite some other VIPs to open our new building in the Stratford Olympic Park’ . Be Proud
