On Friday 23 February Theresa visited Desborough College where she was given a tour of the school’s new SMR Innovation Centre.
The school now has a room with state-of-the-art technology after securing a £155,000 grant from The Spoore Merry and Rixman Foundation.
The money has given students access to a wide range of learning tools which will expand their knowledge in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths.
Theresa spoke to the young learners about the cutting-edge technology during the visit.
“I was pleased to attend this event and enjoyed speaking to the students and hearing how keen they were to improve their technology skills. The Government’s review into tertiary education will make sure the value of vocational and technical courses education is recognised.”
We are putting more money into schools, but I welcome money being made available by organisations like The Spoore Merry and Rixman Foundation and I would encourage more schools in Maidenhead to look at applying to the foundation for grants.”
