The Halley Academy were delighted to welcome Master John Baxter CBE and his wife Margaret from the Tallow Chandlers Company to the academy on Wednesday 9th January. They were joined by David Homer, Clerk to the Tallow Chandlers for a tour of the academy and to meet students from our Social Action Group and Sixth Form students involved in the STEM Mentoring Programme.
Our visitors met with the Principal, John Dixon to discuss ways in which the Tallow Chandlers can support the academy and the wider community.
David Homer commented that he was “very impressed” with how our students spoke and represented themselves.
We look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with the livery company and providing further opportunities for the young people in our community.
