Graham Clifford, Head Teacher, Willow Brook Primary School, London

“City Year UK have become an integral part of the school. The calibre of this year’s team has been impressive, which has meant the pupils at Willow Brook have benefited from one-to-one sessions with adults. Progress in academic terms and those all-important, interpersonal ‘soft skills’ has been all the more rapid due in part to the City Year intervention.

“The line management of the team has been of a very high level, and communication between City Year UK and the school leadership has been similarly well organised and professional.

“I know that the children and parents have very high regard for City Year, as do we all.”
