New leadership ‘making a real difference’ at Barrow school

BARROW and Furness MP John Woodcock believes the new leadership at Furness Academy is “making a real difference”.

The academy welcomed the MP on Friday when he went to see how pupils and teachers are settling into their new site, following the opening of the £22.5m complex in September.

He witnessed the school at work and took part in a Year 10 assembly, followed by a Q&A session.

Mr Woodcock said: “The new academy is so important to our ambition to give our young people the skills they need to take up the great opportunities that will be available locally.

“It was a struggle to get to this point, but the great new facilities can give pupils the springboard they need.

It’s been a difficult beginning for the school and there’s still a long way to go. But new leadership alongside plenty of hard work from staff and students alike is making a real difference.”

Have your say

It is a shame that this has come four and a half years too late and that students over these four years were failed when the whole town was telling the sponsors that leadership at Furness Academy was all wrong. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
