A shelter has been built at the bus stop outside Corby Business Academy after Sixth Form students spent a year campaigning for it.

Last year’s head boy and girl, David Graham and Ellie Mae Moore, and students Morium Akter and Andile Chiwuta, who were members of the school’s senate, met councillors, council officials and bus companies’ representatives last year to put forward their case for the shelter.

All their hard work paid off when the shelter was built ready for the start of the new school year.

Ellie said: “The shelter is fantastic and we are all proud that it is here after all of our efforts.”

The bus shelter was paid for from senate funds and money pledged by local councillors who were contacted by the students. The county council matched the amount students managed to raise.
