Shadow Education Secretary Tristram Hunt and parliamentary candidate Sarah Owen visited Rye Studio School on Monday to meet with students and staff.
Principal Jo Townshend took them on a tour to view the work of students studying photography, fashion, art, graphic design and business, before being interviewed on-camera by student Harley Gentry who asked them both about their policies on free schools, education funding and qualified teachers.
Sarah said, “I’m really grateful to the staff and students at Rye Studio School for giving us an insight into their fantastic courses. Getting to experience their journalism and photography skills first-hand was a true highlight.
“It is good to see them go from strength to strength.”
