Leigh Academies Trust highly values input from our former students. We were delighted that Ragbhir Sandhu, Director of Mobile Bar Hire came to attend the joint Leigh, Longfield and Wilmington academies year 8 options event held at Princes Park, the home of Dartford Football Club, on Tuesday 17th January. Over 600 students visited the event on the day to talk to business visitors who helped them to consider future GCSE options in relation to future career aspirations. We sincerely thank Mr Sandhu and his team for their valuable contribution to the day.


Mr Sandhu commented:

“As a Director of a business established by two former students of the Downs School (now the Leigh Academy), we saw this as a great opportunity to pass on our experience and knowledge of the business world and generally ‘life after school’ to your pupils on the careers day. The entire day was very interactive and it got them thinking more about the different career paths which are available to them. We spoke about how we set up our business, what we do and how we overcame the challenges that life threw at us. The pupils seemed very interested and our company looks forward to further inspiring the next generation of business people.”
