HAMFORD Primary Academy’s principal has been asked to talk at a prestigious education event.

Benedick Ashmore-Short will take part in the Education Show at Birmingham’s NEC Arena in March.

The Walton principal said: “A huge number of people attend the event and it is a chance to talk about Hamford and the journey we have had so far.

“I will talk about the rapid improvement we have undergone and how we achieved it.

“It is a privilege to be invited. It’s a chance to put our school on the map and share what is working so we can improve education.

“We all want to improve standards all over the country so if something is working and you’re having success you should tell everyone.”
