He discussed next stage of planned development
Lord Agnew, the parliamentary under secretary of state for the school system, visited North Cambridge Academy to meet staff and pupils as well as discuss the next stage of planned improvements.
During his visit, Lord Agnew toured the new buildings, including the £250,000 floodlit tennis courts, and discussed the further improvements planned for the coming years with Martin Campbell, the executive principal.
Academies and multi-academy trusts fall within Lord Agnew’s remit, which is why he chose to visit NCA to discuss the improvements it has made in the five years since it transformed from The Manor School.
Lord Agnew said: “It was a pleasure to visit the academy to see the improvements to the site and, most importantly, in academic standards.
“The hard work of staff, pupils and senior leaders at the school is delivering clear results in the classroom. I look forward to further improvements under the guidance of the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust.”
Head boy Aidan Haslop and head girl Angel Glen also met Lord Agnew.
