IT HAS been all change at a secondary school in Daventry as pupils went back earlier this week.

The Parker E-ACT Academy, formerly William Parker School, in Ashby Road, has seen a new uniform and signs to go along with the new name.

The school is now looking to further build on from its successful GCSE results which saw 46 per cent of pupils get five or more A* to C grades, including English and maths, a nine per cent increase on the previous year.

Principal Krysia Butwilowksa said: “There has been a very positive atmosphere around the place among the staff, all very excited to get started with the new year.

“We had a respresentative from E-ACT, the sponsors of our academy, and he was delighted that so many members of staff came up to him and asked if there was anything they could do.”
