Another ‘Outstanding’ service for an ‘outstanding’ school

Posted on 17 Dec 2007

When staff at a local school needed another mini-bus to get them out and about in the community, they turned to a local Ford dealer they knew they could rely on.

Both staff and pupils at Eston Park School on Burns Road in Middlesbrough, are only too familiar with the team at JenningsFord’s commercial centre, having purchased three Ford Transit models from them in the past.

The first vehicle was purchased eight years ago, but unfortunately needed to be replaced with a newer model last year.

As a result of increasing numbers and an increased number of outdoor activities, the school has once again called upon the services of JenningsFord’s commercial centre team on Cargo Fleet Lane in Middlesbrough, to purchase another vehicle for the school.

As a school designated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED, in addition to being granted ‘Specialist School’ status in Business and Enterprise, it was only right that the school received nothing but an ‘outstanding’ service from JenningsFord.

“The mini-bus we bought last year has been so reliable and this, combined with the professional and outstanding service we’ve received in the past from JenningsFord, we just couldn’t and wouldn’t go anywhere else,” said Norman Willey, assistant head teacher at Eston Park School.

The handover took place at the school where Ian Torbet, commercial sales executive at JenningsFord in Middlesbrough, handed the key to assistant head teacher, Norman Willey with pupils from the school who will be benefiting from the mini-bus.

Ian Torbet, commercial sales executive at JenningsFord in Middlesbrough, said; “It was a pleasure doing business with Eston Park School. Once again, we organised the school logo on the side of the bus, which was all in place for the delivery date.”

Utilised for school, after school and sport activity weekends, already the new bus has been booked for its first excursion. As part of their GCSE Technology studies, 30, Year 11 students will be heading for an overnight stay at a training centre in Whitby.
