Oriel High School is featured in The Parliamentary Review
Every year The Parliamentary Review’s September launch brings together the most creative and inspiring voices across business, industry, education and the public sector to share insight, encourage best practice and help organisations confront the challenges of an ever-changing political landscape. Co-chaired by Lord Blunkett and Lord Pickles, The Review features commentary from senior politicians including the prime minister.
Oriel High School is situated in Maidenbower, Crawley, and is an institution built by the community, for the community. Elaborating on this aspect in their Review article and the journey the school has been on over the years and the next steps they plan on taking, Headteacher, Philip Stack stated: “We are delighted to be involved in this year’s Parliamentary Review and we hope our story is read widely.”
This year’s Review aptly displays the collaborative approach that is necessary if the education sector is to continue to flourish. With a diverse range of secondary schools included in the 2017/18 edition, it offers pertinent insight into the issues that head teachers and educational bodies face.
The director of The Parliamentary Review, Craig Wilmann, has commented that “by bringing together leaders in all fields from across the country, this year’s Review, with its customary candid language and intelligent thought, is uniquely placed to offer insight and ideas for politicians and industry leaders, and indeed every type of organisation in modern Britain.”
Writing in The Review, the prime minister says that “Our modern Industrial Strategy means government stepping up to secure the foundations of our productivity: providing an education system that delivers the skills our economy needs, improving school standards, and transforming technical education.”
