Arkwright maintains strong relations with its 996 (and growing) affiliated secondary schools across the UK through the work of our team of 18 Liaison Officers.

We are delighted to report that our Liaison Officer for North West London and Hertfordshire, Mr John Coleman, was recently made a Freeman of the Merchant Taylors' Company (one of the 110 London Livery Companies). As part of this John was bestowed with the honour of becoming a Freeman of the City of London at a ceremony at the Guildhall, London on 20th June.
