RGS Welcomes Allan Cook CBE, from Atkins plc, as Part of Visit Our Schools Week

As part of our new Science Specialist School status we have the privilege of hosting a Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT) “Visit our Schools” event. On Wednesday, 20 October 2010 we will be welcoming the Chairman of Atkins plc, Mr Allan Cook CBE, and senior representatives from SSAT to our school. Atkins plc is one of the world’s leading engineering and design consultancies.

Our guests will be visiting our school, talking to our leadership team, teachers and students as well as taking a tour of our school and its facilities. The focus of the visit is to discuss potential future partnerships with Atkins plc under the SSAT Employer Engagement programme. 

The visit is part of a national campaign, Visit our Schools Week. During the week of the 18-22 October leading CEOs and other senior staff from the private and public sectors, at the invitation of headteachers, will visit state schools throughout the country. It will be a chance for them to hear from staff and young people about their schools, to witness that work at first hand and to discuss how they could work together to help young people reach their potential.
