PERSHORE’S MP Harriett Baldwin ushered in a new era for the town’s high school’s budding artists with the official opening of a new art block.

The West Worcestershire MP cut the ribbon on the state of the art classrooms at a ceremony on Thursday (October 1), as part of a £3.4million project to improve the school, including a humanities block which is due for completion next year.

The event was the culmination of a two year lobbying scheme in which Mrs Baldwin approached the Education Funding Agency to support the school’s bid for funds.

“Last summer I joined headteacher Clive Corbett and his team in hard hats and high visibility jackets to start the demolition process and just a year later, we are able to walk around this amazing new building,” said Mrs Baldwin.

“I studied art at A Level so I can imagine what a difference these great new classrooms will make to the young artists working here,” she added.

Mr Corbett said: “I was so pleased Harriett could join us to mark another stage in the development of Pershore High School.
