Vernon was honoured to officially open the new Oakwood Academy in Top Valley this morning. He is pictured below with some of the school's ambassadors in their new uniforms.
Part of the Redhill Academy Trust, The Oakwood Academy was formerly known as Big Wood School and was placed into special measures by Ofsted in 2013. Today's grand re-opening marked the beginning of a new era for staff and students at Oakwood, who have high hopes for the future.
