Corby Technical School pupils recently showed off their technical prowess to education secretary Nicky Morgan.
They gave the minister an insight into everyday life at the free school as she watched a number of lessons and talked to them about their passion for technical subjects.
Representatives from one of the school’s business links, engineering firm Cummins, also spoke to Mrs Morgan about its work with the students on a Lego engine.
Mrs Morgan, who at the start of her visit saw an assembly about students’ work with virtual reality devices, said: “I have been very clear of the need for schools to form strong links with the business community so that their young people develop the skills needed to succeed in working life.
“It is clear how passionate the students are about their learning and today I have seen some examples of excellent and innovative technical education.”
