Oliver Dowden’s visit to Hertswood Academy came toward the end of what has been a fantastic year for the Borehamwood school. This year the school achieved its best ever GCSE and A Level results, and was graded 'Good' by Ofsted.
Oliver met with Headteacher, Peter Gillett, to discuss the fantastic results, view the school's facilities and to listen to plans to develop a new school building, combining the school into a single site.
Oliver said of his visit:
"It has been great to visit the school and see what a brilliant job Peter Gillett and all the staff have done in creating an environment in which students can flourish.
“I am very excited and interested to see how the plans to combine the two schools sites into one progress. Hopefully it will see the school continue and improve on its good work".
