Working in Partnership
The Cambridgeshire school is the newest member of the Brooke Weston Partnership and its students and staff were given an introduction to life at CBA.
Deputy Executive Principal of BWP Andrew Campbell gave the students a talk about the partnership and emphasized the individual character of each of the schools and the family nature of the partnership.
After a tour of the building, the Thomas Clarkson Community College students (many of whom were from the school's Ambassador programme) chatted with their CBA counterparts about all aspects of student life.
The TCCC students will be moving into a state of the art new building in January.
TCCC Vice Principal Gerwyn Williams said: "It is an exciting time for TCCC, as we move into our new building in the new year and the next phase of our development is linking up with the successful schools in the Brooke Weston Partnership.
"It is a great time for our students and for the town of Wisbech."
Year 9 student Annie Nichols and Year 8 student James Clark (pictured right with CBA students Josh Cresswell and Eve Pavitt) were among the students who came to visit.
James said: "I am really impressed with CBA as I like the openness and it has a real business feeling to it."
The Brooke Weston Partnership now consists of CBA, Brooke Weston Academy, the Kettering Science Academy and the Thomas Clarkson Community College.
BWP is also working in partnership with Tresham College to found the new free school for Corby, which is set to open in September 2012.
