Victoria Prentis, Member of Parliament for North Oxfordshire, spent Friday morning at school at Bicester Community College, briefly attending lessons including Maths, Art and English.

 

Victoria visited Head Teacher Tony Rushworth and a number of his staff, to speak in more detail about the school’s future plans and ever improving standards. She was then given a tour of the school with staff and Head Boy Mj Oosthuizen.

 

Victoria said “I was so happy that one of my first of many visits as MP for North Oxfordshire was to a greatly improved school.  I was very impressed with the steps Bicester Community College have taken to offer the best opportunities for students.  I am excited for their future, and know staff have a clear vision of aspiration for the young people studying there.”

 

Mr Rushworth commented: “We were pleased to welcome Victoria to our school and to be able to demonstrate the pride and commitment of our staff and students.

 

“This is an exciting point in the school’s development, as we prepare to re-launch as The Bicester School, an academy sponsored by Activate Learning, in September.

 

“Victoria recognised the significant improvements which have already been delivered and we look forward to building on these for the further benefit of pupils and the local community.”

Thank you for supporting Victoria!

Visit to The Warriner School Lambing Weekend

Warriner Lambing

Victoria spent an afternoon in the Spring sunshine at The Warriner School’s Lambing Weekend on Saturday 7th March 2015. Accompanied by her three year old niece, she spoke with Head Teacher, Dr Annabel Kay, about how the school is going from strength to strength, and how all of the school’s staff and pupils can be proud of recent results.

Sixth Form students with an interest in fields such as veterinary science are provided with fantastic hands on agricultural experience through the school farm. For the first time, the school is preparing for students to sit their A2s this Summer. After opening in September 2013, the school’s Further Education offering has proved immensely popular.

“The school farm is an innovative way of familiarising students with agricultural practices, inside and alongside a mainstream education. It helps teach responsibility, smallholding skills and respect for our natural environment.”
