May opens new drama centre

The Home Secretary Theresa May took centre stage at a Maidenhead school last week.

The MP for the area cut the ribbon to mark the opening of The Jacoby Studios, the new performing arts centre at Desborough College.

The facilities, which include a studio and theatre, will be used by more than 300 key stage 3, GCSE and A-level students each week. They will also be used for activities such as after-school drama and dance clubs, assemblies and sixth-form lectures.

Johnson Kane, chief executive of The Education Fellowship, said: “We take our responsibility as sponsor to Desborough College very seriously and are grateful to the minister for joining us to complete what is an undeniably special day in the college’s life.

“We all look forward to seeing and hearing some great performances here over the coming years.”
