Ruffley to attend Culford School Speech Day

Monday, 12 May, 2008

David Ruffley MP will be attending Culford School's Speech Day on Saturday 17 May.

The name of Culford School became established in 1935 when the East Anglian School for Boys outgrew its original site in Bury St Edmunds and moved to Culford. The 480-acre estate has provided a remarkable location for the educational changes of the next 65 years. In 1972 Culford amalgamated with its sister school, the East Anglian School for Girls, and became one of the pioneering co-educational boarding and day schools in the country.

David said:

'I always look forward to my visits to Culford School and this occasion is no different.

'I will be spending much of Saturday listening to pupils from the school and have every confidence that they will put on an excellent display. I am always impressed with the quality of work and debate put forward by Culford students.

'Culford has a fantastic track record educating people who go on to make a mark on our country and the wider world. It is entirely possible that some of the students I listen to this week will go on to be the leaders of the future- it will be an exciting day.'
