Quest students paid host to local MP Gavin Barwell who enjoyed a guided tour of the Academy. Mr Barwell met with members of the Student Leadership Team who introduced him to a number of lessons and provided him with the opportunity to view the progress of the brand new, state-of-the-art £16 million Academy building, which is due for completion in September.

Subsequently, Mr Barwell met Academy council representatives from all year groups to answer questions and discuss issues relating to both the concerns and hopes of young people in Croydon.  Finally, Mr Barwell spent a short while with the Principal Mr Crofts and Executive Principal Mrs Martin feeding back on the discussions with students. He particularly emphasised how positive the students felt about the fantastic progress being made by the Academy and how excited they all were by the prospect of moving in to the new building.
