Without the support of The Johnson Foundation’s ‘match-funding’, we would not be able to fly sixteen Birkenhead children to China to visit our sister school. It was a ‘once-in-a-lifetime opportunity’* for our children to experience Chinese schooling, home life and their world-famous hospitality. It has helped to challenge and change the expectations of our children and their families. *quoted in our ofsted report, April 2018

Thanks so much for all your support with the Young Chamber Cadet programme this year, I think it has been the most worthwhile project we have ever taken part in, in terms of outcomes for the children in both the short and long term, as well as fostering some great connections locally for our school. It has been such a valuable opportunity for our children, and supporting our mantra ‘ learn today, aspire for life’ as the project has certainly reinforced our high aspirations and given the children sight of what can be achieved.
Thank you Alex, for your hard work, enthusiasm and commitment to our school, and of course your warmth and professionalism, which draw the children to you. We are delighted we can continue with you next year.
Headteacher, Cathcart Street Primary School
