Mark Fletcher, Conservative MP for Bolsover, said that meeting the PM was the “opportunity of a lifetime” for students at the school.
“It was an absolute honour to be able to welcome the Prime Minister to Bolsover today, the first time ever that a sitting PM has visited our constituency. He was keen to visit the school following the government's Summer announcement approving The Redhill Academy Trust's plan to build a sixth form in the town.
“I’d like to thank him for taking the time to engage with students – he was shown around the school by head prefects, Jacob and Georgia, and joined in two of Year 7's science classes. For these young people to be able to spend time with the Prime Minister of the UK is an opportunity of a lifetime.
“Children growing up in communities across Bolsover will now have better life chances because of the Government’s support and I could not be prouder of headteacher Matt Hall and all those involved who have helped make this project a success.”
