Ty Goddard recognised in London 1000 list

Co-founder Ty Goddard was recognised as one of London’s 1000 most influential people for the third year running – at a glittering event at the Francis Crick Institute on 16th October 2014. The Evening Standard 1000 list was supported this year by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Wellcome Trust to recognise leaders from across the city making a difference in their sector. Ty was named amongst  just 20 ‘Education Campaigners” for the work he has done on education reform nationally and across London on tackling the school places crisis. His citation reads as follows:
