Good luck to this vibrant institution

In ‘They’ve done well out of the new school’ (News Guardian, September 19, John Loughlin bemoans perceived or actual spin and misrepresentations by the Woodard Trust in respect of a lack of past investment in Priory Primary.

Bricks, mortar, slate and railings are important, but of greater value is investment in staff, special needs provision and the children themselves. I suspect that it is this to which David Bilton referred.

The leadership of Priory and its parents consented to the union with Kings and I find it both churlish and mildly irritating to hear more and petty criticism of this vibrant new institution.

Good luck to the new school.
