A Fenland academy has received an award for its cleaning standards, grounds maintenance and catering.

Thomas Clarkson Academy in Wisbech was one of 10 schools to receive the Centre of Excellence Award from The Mitie group, which manages facilities at more than 120 schools across the country.

Every area inspected, including cleaning standards, grounds maintenance and catering, was graded as good or excellent.

Facilities manager Barry Read said: “We at Mitie pride ourselves on our commitment to working with the school to provide as safe, comfortable and clean an environment as possible to enable the staff and students to enjoy the optimum teaching and learning experience.

“We work in close unison with the senior leadership team and all other staff and regularly share ideas to continue to improve on the very high standards already set.”
