Rob Wilson MP became Minister for Civil Society in September


Earlier this week, Cabinet member Rob Wilson MP visited Central Foundation Boys’ School to take a closer look at The Key Project and the work they do with The Access Project and Slaughter & May.

Mr Wilson assumed the office of Minister for Civil Society in September of this year. He visited the school to see how the partnership with the educational charity The Access Project and law firm Slaughter & May has positively affected the school, where the rate of 5 A*-C GCSEs including English and Maths has broken Islington records of above 80% and A Level and BTEC pass rates are at 99%.

Mr Wilson heard from Mr Brownhill, Headteacher; Andrew Berwick, Access Project Director and John Nevin, Slaughter & May partner about how the relationship works behind the scenes and the organisation that goes on. He then spoke to volunteer tutors involved in the project and a number of pupils from Year 11 to Year 13 currently receiving academic tuition and support with the university applications, who shared the ways in which their involvement with The Key Project had a positive impact on both their current work and their aspirations for the future.
