David Ruffley MP to visit South Lee School to hear about plans for a new community facility

Friday, 25 November, 2011

David Ruffley MP will be visiting South Lee School in Bury St Edmunds on Friday 25 November at 10.30am, accompanied by Governor, Mr David Barker.

David Ruffley said: 'I look forward to meeting pupils and teachers at South Lee School. The school is a particularly interesting organisation in light of the current focus on Free Schools. We can draw parallels with its creation from scratch in 1961 by a group of concerned parents operating as a charitable trust, with the current innovations in education regarding the creation of Free Schools across the country.

The School has a can-do ethos . That is why I am going to learn more about its plans to build a new sports hall which will allow access to the wider non-school community in the area.'
