Danny Thorpe Visit

Danny Thorpe, Royal Borough of Greenwich Leader visits The Halley Academy and Leigh Academy Blackheath.

Leigh Academies Trust (LAT) was delighted to welcome Danny Thorpe, Leader of The Royal Borough of Greenwich to Leigh Academy Blackheath and The Halley Academy accompanied by LAT’s CEO, Simon Beamish.

Danny, a former teacher himself, engaged in an informed conversation about the strategic developments and significant improvements that have already taken place at The Halley Academy since it joined LAT six months ago. He was impressed by the calm and purposeful learning environment as he toured the school and visited lessons.  Danny witnessed first hand the fruits of the £1.5m Royal Borough of Greenwich investment in the brand new dining room and catering facilities due for completion in November, as well as the major refurbishment of classrooms and IT infrastructure that are transforming The Halley Academy into a stimulating and vibrant place to learn and work.  We are looking forward to developing an even closer working relationship with Danny and the Royal Borough of Greenwich for the benefit of our wonderful students and staff.
