South Northamptonshire special school treated to visit from MP Andrea Leadsom
'Her sentiments and experience shared with staff and students made a lasting impact'
Students and staff at a South Northamptonshire special school were treated to a visit from the MP last week.
Andrea Leadsom met Potterspury Lodge School pupils of all ages as well as staff going through teacher training and other residential management courses on Friday (October 16).
A school spokesperson said: "The school community wishes to thank Mrs Leadsom for taking the time to visit our school.
"Her sentiments and experience shared with staff and students made a lasting impact."
Mrs Leadsom met with Year 9 students George Auty, Samuel Baines, and Sidney Milsom-Payne with assistant principal Nicola Ready to discuss their project qualifications, part of Potterspury Lodge's re-structured curriculum.
The Conservative MP joined the pupils for their mathematics lesson with trainee teacher Emily Gresty.
Mrs Leadsom also visited an A-level chemistry lesson, where she met lead science teacher Sam Goodgame, and Year 12 student Jacob Crew, who achieved seven GCSEs in August.
Potterspury Lodge is one of the few special schools to offer Level 3 qualifications to its students.
Mrs Leadsom was informed about how students are supported through our leading clinical offer and pathway to adulthood programme which supports our young people in their post-16 and post-18 options.
