Connexin CTO and former pupil of Tranby, Will Kebbell is keen to give back to the school. Will Kebbell said “As a former pupil, I have gained so much from the school myself and we wanted to show our support. It’s been great working with the teachers and the design and technology department. The school is very innovative and is keen to lead the way forward in education using next generation technology.”
