Impact It has been the most amazing project, not only in respect to the results Parkside going from their French option in danger of disappearing from the curriculum to a now healthy class size, plus discussions to add Spanish to the provision but also in the example of how collaboration can work. The way in which your team have worked with us has proven that when people are dedicated and committed, real success can be achieved. The programme has been exciting, innovative

and challenging. Personally, this collaboration will be the standard by which I think collaboration should be measured.
