East Riding College merged with the TEC Partnership on 31 July. The TEC Partnership is a dynamic and innovative group of colleges and training providers and is already one of England’s largest and most successful providers of further and higher education.
As part of the TEC Partnership, the College will retain its influence, identity and ability to deliver its mission within the dynamic of the wider partnership.
East Riding College said farewell to its long-serving Chair of the Corporation at the end of July.
Local businessman Simon Wright joined the board of governors at the college fifteen years ago when the Beverley campus was based at the old Gallows Lane site and before the current Bridlington campus was built.
Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, has continued his longstanding support for Education & Employers’ ‘Primary Futures’ programme with a visit to Beverley St Nicholas Primary School.
The campaign, which Graham helped launch in Parliament last year, aims to bring volunteers into schools to talk about their careers in order to inspire pupils and broaden their horizons about the world of work.
More than 95% of Year 6 children resident in the East Riding have been awarded places for the school named by their parents/carers as their first preference in the 2020/21 secondary school admissions round.
Letters to parents/carers informing them of the outcome of their applications for secondary school places in September 2020, are being sent out today, Monday 2nd March. This is known as ‘National Offer Day’ and is the date that all local authorities in England send the results of applications to parents/carers.
Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, has visited Beverley Minster Primary School to get an update from school leaders.
Mr Stuart met with the Headteacher, Rachel Hatter, and the Chair of Governors, Tim Walker. While there he spoke with them about improvements being made around the school. He also found time to meet some of the pupils to hear about their time there.
