Robert Smyth welcomes MP to celebrate £750k investment

Neil O’Brien MP for Harborough, Oadby and Wigston recently visited Robert Smyth Academy in Market Harborough for a tour of the school, and meeting with new Principal Dan Cleary to discuss future investment plans.

During the visit, he was taken on a tour led by students, as well as partaking in a question and answer session. This was followed by a discussion on the future plans of the Academy, including recent news of a £750k investment into the Academy by Tudor Grange Academies Trust.

Neil O’Brien MP, said, “I really enjoyed my visit to Robert Smyth Academy in Market Harborough; the student led tour was excellent. They asked a number of highly topical and relevant questions during the Q&A session which was also very encouraging. There is a really positive atmosphere at Robert Smyth and this will only be further enhanced by the forthcoming investment into the premises, which is very welcome news.”

The Principal, Dan Cleary, said, ‘The students enjoyed showing Neil O’Brien MP around the school and having the opportunity to gain an invaluable insight into his world of work, which they found incredibly interesting. It was also great to be able to share our exciting news with Neil, which will see improved audio-visual equipment across the school, better access and also new training and reprographics rooms, which we are excited to share with staff and students when they come back after the summer break and with potential students and their families at our Open Evening on Thursday 27th September.’
