The Trust was delighted on 15 November 2017 to welcome Mike Green, the Director of Capital within the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) to visit two schools. Mike visited two of the schools within the Trust that have recently moved into new brand buildings, having been based in temporary accommodation for some time.
Mike has over 10 years’ experience leading large multisite construction programmes and is responsible for managing the delivery of building and maintenance programmes for schools and colleges in the Department of Education.
Mike met with Claire Delaney, Chair of Trustees of BPET and Mark Greatrex, Chief Executive of BPET. Together they visited Whitehall Park School, Islington and Watling Park School, Barnet to compare the successes of each building programme, and to see the schools in action. Mike was hugely impressed with how well the children are engaging with the new buildings, and praised the inspirational learning environments.
