Enjoyed my recent visit to Corsham School

Enjoyed my recent visit to Corsham School. I met with the Headmaster to discuss challenges and opportunities. Plus I did a Q and A with students. I was impressed by the engaged and varied kind of questioning. I try to do as many engagement events as possible with young people because their voice is too often under represented and unheard.

Corsham High School is an Arts College and Mixed Secondary school. It was interesting to see how they use art at all levels and and all subjects to encourage creativity and independent thought. Their recent A Level results were some of the best in the country highlighting that a successful education is often created when schools aim to create well rounded individuals at the same time.

Well done and thank to student Ben Hayday who is the School Managing Director of the Student Leaders for organising the visit.
