The task of generating a timetable can often seem daunting to the inexperienced. So when Kennet School Deputy Headteacher, Chris Ellison, was assigned the role of school timetabler, he decided to enlist specialist support from Edval Timetables.
With a large student body of around 1800, Kennet is an Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ academy located in Thatcham, Berkshire. Chris had no prior experience of writing a school timetable and felt he had much to learn in this area. However, with specialist help from Edval, Kennet staff and students were able to benefit from a number of incredible improvements:
‘It is a tough task to improve the quality of a timetable whilst making significant financial savings’ says Chris ‘But the consultants who worked with our school helped to deliver incredible results. Describing Kennet School’s experience with Edval as ‘very positive’, he adds that ‘I can certainly recommend them to other schools who seek to achieve these sorts of positive outcomes’
