Pupils at Corby Technical School had a visit from the education secretary.
Nicky Morgan was given an insight into everyday school life at the school, as she attended a number of lessons and talked to pupils about their interest in technical subjects.
Representatives from one of the school’s business links, multinational engineering firm Cummins, also spoke to the minister about its work with students on a Lego engine.
During her visit the minister spoke to students about some of the technical projects they have been involved in, such as designing models for a technologically advanced railway station. Principal Angela Reynolds said: “We are thrilled that the education secretary wanted to come and see for herself the great work that is going on here at our school.”
