A TOUR of the new Thomas Clarkson Academy in Wisbech has been arranged by the Friends of Wisbech Institute, so members and guests can take a look at the state of the art facilities.

Academy Principal Clare Claxton will lead the tour of the £35m new building, which takes place on Thursday February 21 at 4pm.

Clare said: “I am delighted to be Principal of an Academy that puts learning and individual achievement at the heart of everything it does. Every Thomas Clarkson student is special. I want each student to succeed; to gain the best possible qualifications and become confident, thoughtful young people so they leave us prepared for the future challenges of an exciting and increasingly global world.”

Vistitors can hear more about the Principal’s ambitions for the students and Academy during the visit.

Institute chairman John Smith said: “I am sure there will be a clamour for the limited places, so I would encourage anyone who wants to join us, to book their tickets early.”

Tickets cost £5 for members and £8 for guests. Tickets are available from Etcetera, in Bridge Street, Wisbech.

Contact Mr Smith on 07776322129 for more details.
