Business Working with Wythenshawe (BW3), has launched its first High School of the Year initiative with Newall Green High School, Wythenshawe.

The school is progressing many of its ideas for the extra support BW3 can provide. This includes assistance with marketing and social media, book donations, improvements to school décor and a range of new activities planned to take place in school.

To celebrate the partnership, BW3 arranged for cakes to be delivered during staff training days to provide teachers and staff members with a sweet treat. Andy Park, executive head commented: “The staff were taken by surprise and were absolutely delighted. It helped create a really positive start to the term,”

A focus on careers-based activity saw BW3 members businesses attend the school to give an insight into their careers and to inspire children to raise their future aspirations.

The School of the Year project provides tailor-made support from BW3 based on the individual school’s needs, leading to beneficial engagement with local businesses that the school may otherwise not have access to.
