More Gratnells trays spotted on TV! We were (as always) delighted to spot some Gratnells Trays in a classroom in Channel 4’s Mr Drew’s School for Boys. The trays were the background to a fair amount of fighting and swearing as the programme showed Mr Drew (former star of Educating Essex) trying to improve the behaviour of a group of unruly 11 year old boys.

“Boys aged 12 and under are now almost six times more likely than girls to be kicked out of school, while 90% of young offenders were previously excluded from school.

Inspirational headteacher Stephen Drew from Educating Essex wants to help 11 boys whose behaviour is threatening their future by enrolling them – and their parents – in a residential summer school like no other. Mr Drew has been dealing with challenging boys and their parents for 15 years, but with the families living on site, this is a first.

With his crack team of behaviour expert Tracey Campbell and inspirational teachers Dominic Volante, Lindsay Skinner, Mark Grist and Ben Vidler, can Mr Drew get the boys to unlock their true potential before it’s too late?

And can their parents confront their sons’ behaviour and face up to their own shortcomings?”

The programme was shown on Channel 4 earlier this year and more information and clips can be found on the Ch4 website.

 

Buying legend retires

Not sure about the colours!

It is a fond farewell to Alan Roe who is retiring from YPO after many years kicking furniture manufacturers about. Alan has been one of our buyers and point of contact for most of my time at Gratnells. He will be missed. His retirement also coincides with the company’s 40th birthday. YPO is the UK’s largest public sector buying organisation, established in 1974 by local government authorities to help combine their procurement demands and hopefully achieve efficiency savings. I managed to get a slice of the birthday cake

Awards for Education Show stands

We were very pleased to have won not one but two awards for our stands at the Education Show earlier this year.  Both our main Gratnells stand and our new Learning Rooms launch stand received certificates for their stand design. At the end of the Show, a panel of judges from Show Review UK selected 20 stands from the huge number of stands there as outstanding exhibitors. The criteria was for overall stand design, presentation, graphics, customer service and literature, press packs and other handouts.
