THERESA May took a break from her busy schedule to visit Reading Blue Coat on Friday and learn about a new outreach programme.

The Prime Minister heard about the Aldworth Partnership and spoke with students, who are responsible for leading the scheme.

A number other schools are involved, including Thameside Primary, Sonning Primary and Cranbury College.

Jesse Elzinga, headteacher at Reading Blue Coat, said: "It was heartwarming to hear the [primary school] pupils describe to the Prime Minister what they liked about their link with Blue Coat.

"They mentioned using our cross country course, swimming in our pool, and being taught languages, maths and sport by our pupils back at their own schools.’

As part of her special visit, the Prime Minister held a surprise PM Question Time session with Government and Politics students.
