Council receives ‘Investors in Education’ award

West Oxfordshire District Council has received an 'Investors in Education' Award in recognition
of its joint work with Marlborough School.

Dene Robson, Head of Rural Development said, “We attend the school's regular business meetings and offer support and advice as and when needed. We are currently helping the school to organise an inter-schools careers event in the autumn. The school helps us too, for example we worked on a joint visitor survey for the 'Wake up to Woodstock' campaign.”

Wycombe Leisure Ltd, who manages the Council's leisure facilities in the District, also received an 'Investors in Education' award. Ben Border who collected the award was recognised for the time he had spent with 'A' level Leisure Studies students as part of their course work.

Cllr Tony Walker, Cabinet Member for Economic Development said, “The Council recognises the important contribution made by young people and is keen to work with Marlborough School in its efforts to link business with education.”
