Outcomes: Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy opened as a state-funded non-selective, all-ability, non-denominational secondary school in September 2014 to serve an area with a chronic projected shortage of secondary places. The school is now judged good by Ofsted and is successfully recruiting to planned admission numbers. In September 2016 the school moves into new premises in central Slough.
Client comment: "The advice and support we have received has been immensely helpful. Ben's wide ranging knowledge and experience [particularly in the field of education] has guided us through the minefield of marketing strategy. He instils confidence and just makes the job a whole lot easier!”
