On Friday 20 April 2018, the newly formed Student Leadership Team received a visit from local MP Holly Lynch. Holly received a tour of the Academy and then took questions from some of our students. The students asked probing and challenging questions, such as “What is your view on the current situation in Syria?” and “What are the biggest challenges you have faced in your career so far?”.

Holly was so impressed with our students that she has invited us down to Westminster to have a tour of the Houses of Parliament. The students are looking forward to this event, which will take place in the coming months.

Following the visit, Ms Lynch tweeted her thanks and tweeted “lovely to meet with the new student Senior Leadership Team at Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge this morning; great kids taking the lead in transforming their school and their communities”.
