First visit of the day was to the new Sixth Form Centre in Haringey – which will open for business in September. It is a fantastic building and will deliver top class facilities for students. The Minister Jim Knight was coming to see the building. The new Head seems fantastic – and she will be inspirational for the new students; I wish her well.
Whilst most of the probable feeder schools are on the Tottenham side of the borough, Woodside High School – which is in Hornsey & Wood Green – is a feeder school too. It will also be open to all children in the borough to apply and – for those who don’t want to go onto their own school’s sixth form if they have one – this will be a really vibrant alternative.
