I would like to take this opportunity as we enter into our 10th year of our PFI build to reflect and give feedback on the service we have received from Benchmark over those years.
We have seen the site mature and develop into what can only be described as a fantastic site, visitors always comment on the standard of the grounds maintenance.
The partnership has developed over the 10 years and now sees us working with Benchmark not only as part of our PFI commitment but also independently working with us directly, as part of our Enrichment Programme.
The team that works on the site deserves recognition for their hard work and support; nothing is ever too much trouble (even working around the complex needs of the exam timetable, to ensure that no works take place during GCSE and A level exams) but still managing to keep the site looking tip top.
The Enrichment Programme – Benchmark staff work with 10 students from year 8, we have seen them complete their first cycle. In Jan 2017 they will start with a new group of year 8 students who have all chosen this activity as part of their enrichment choices. Since the appointment of the Team Leader – Tomasz, the site and the partnership has gone from strength to strength and its lovely to see his hard work and commitment to Benchmark being recognised by Benchmark. He is a fantastic ambassador for the company.
I would also like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to you Shaun (Commercial Director) as well, for your continued help and support throughout the 10 years, always professional, helpful and open to feedback.
