Mr Everett is passionate about marketing and communications and has created campaigns for National Citizen Service and other programmes that the EBP delivers to schools and young people.

The school was delighted with its GCSE successes. Sophie Cooknell from Welbourn and Kerry May from Ancaster both achieved outstanding results.
