University Academy Holbeach is first and only school in Lincolnshire to win the pfeg’s Centre of Excellence Award.

The school, which is one of 25 to win the award, won due to the fact that it delivers money and finance lessons across all year groups to a high standard.

Following the award presentation, head of maths Jackie Hallett and pfeg organiser Jane Chandler presented two one hour workshops to other delegates, who are now aiming to follow in their footsteps, on the topic of teaching and learning.

They shared their innovative ideas on delivering money and finance outside of the National Curriculum and schemes of work, some of the projects and day’s events that the maths department organised and ran to enthuse the students whilst imparting information.
