Corby MP quizzed by Wellingborough pupils

MP for Corby and East Northants Tom Pursglove went back to his old school for a question and answer session with pupils. Mr Pursglove was quizzed by Sir Christopher Hatton Academy’s Year 11 and Year 13 students over a variety of politics topics.

The students asked a range of questions varying from “how many hours do you work a week?” to “do you want to be Prime Minister?”. Head boy Daniel Gunn said: “Meeting and discussing politics with Tom Pursglove was an insightful experience, especially as I am planning to study politics, philosophy and economics at Oxford University. “I was particularly interested in his response to my question on Scottish independence, where he argued that the union should remain together due to our shared history – this was not an aspect of the argument I had considered before and was eye-opening for me.” Victoria Bishop, executive principal, said: “We are immensely proud of Tom’s success, and were delighted to welcome him back to the academy. “The students found this to be a thoroughly interesting and engaging session, and it is a real benefit to be able to offer them an audience with a working politician who they can relate to as a former student. “I would like to extend my thanks to Tom for taking time out of his schedule to support us.”
