Award-winning comedian James Acaster returned to his home town of Kettering last Saturday to re-open The Studio at Wren Spinney School.

Acaster, who previously worked at a special school in Bermondsey, took time to pose for photos with pupils and says he is “proud to have something like this in his home town”.

The school’s business manager Ann Brown says the re-opening means a lot to pupils.

She said: “It was a really well attended event and there was a great buzz about it.

“Having James here really means something to the kids and it’s great that he has a connection with it through his previous work.

“It’s great that he has taken time to not only come here but email us to say how much he enjoyed meeting everyone.

“This is a really innovative move using one premises for Wren Spinney, Isebrook and Maplefields in Corby.

“Any student, with any level of ability, can contribute in some way at the studio.”
