Former pupil Paul Gurden meets teacher Mr Ashford in Career WorkOut at Leon
Former pupil Paul Gurden, now Document Control Manager at Network Rail, met former teacher David Ashford at Sir Herbert Leon Academy, where they were both volunteering as guests in a Career WorkOut session.
“I was honoured to give advice at my old school,” said Paul, “and I was thrilled that Mr Ashford, a teacher from my era (1980’s),was there as well.”
