Heather Wheeler OBE MP recently visited The Mease Spencer Academy in Hilton to meet with Headteacher Mrs Julia Hart, and to be interviewed by the student councillors during school assembly as part of their Parliament Week programme.
The Mease Spencer Academy is a member of The Spencer Academies Trust. The Spencer Academies Trust is an exempt charity constituted for the purpose of delivering education services across the East Midlands. As multi-academy trust, the Spencer Academies Trust brings together primary schools including early years and nurseries, secondary schools and sixth-form provision in order to provide an outstanding education for local children.
Heather Wheeler MP says:
‘It was a delight to visit The Mease Spencer Academy, a school I worked so hard to get built in Hilton around four years ago, and I was very impressed and pleased to see that it still looked as good as new!’
‘It was a great pleasure to meet the student councillors who asked very insightful questions about what it means to be an MP and how one can best serve their community. We discussed British values and democracy and even managed to get round to the Lionesses who are big favourites with the Mease Spencer girls football team. It was a lovely morning and I look forward to visiting again.’
