School gets stella start to new term

St. George’s CE Primary in Bromley have had an amazing start to their new academic term.

Kathy Griffiths, Chief Executive of the Aquinas Trust and Ellen Peyton, Headteacher of,St. George's Primary, Bromley were delighted to spend the afternoon with The Rt. Hon. Gavin Williamson, MP Secretary of State for Education and Bob Neill, MP for Bromley and Chislehurst.   

The Secretary of State visited St George’s to meet with the Senior Leadership team to grasp an understanding of flexible working within the teaching profession. 

During his visit, the Education Secretary also met with the School Council who were able to discuss the challenges he believed he would encounter during his first year in office.   

If that wasn’t enough, they were then visited by Good Morning Britain’s infamous gardener, Danny Clarke, who had 72 hours to complete a green-fingered project.

After much hard work, on Monday morning, the school were able to unveil a fantastic new outdoor learning environment. 

The new Science garden will be a place for personal reflection, used for science lessons and the school’s green-fingered gardening club. 

Headteacher Ellen Peyton said:

“Danny was amazing; our pupils were absolutely thrilled to witness this fabulous transformation.

"We enjoyed the most collaborative experience with our St George’s family; our Community certainly did rise to the occasion and, as always, demonstrated the school’s Virtues in every way possible.”
